About Women’s Aid
By choosing Women’s Aid as our charity partner, we are making a real difference to the lives of women and children living with domestic violence in Ireland by helping to fund the 24hr Women’s Aid National Freephone Helpline 1800 341 900 and other vital services. By raising funds we are helping Women’s Aid to continue to provide support to women and their children from all over Ireland who are experiencing emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse in their own homes and in their relationships.
Women’s Aid has been working to stop domestic violence against women and children since 1974. They are the leading domestic violence organisation in the Republic of Ireland and they run the only national, free, domestic violence 24hr Helpline (1800 341 900) with a text service for deaf women and an interpretation service which allows them to support women in over 170 languages.
Each day, they answer approximately 50 calls from women experiencing abuse from current or former husbands, partners and boyfriends. The Helpline provides vital support and information to individual callers and serves as an access point to other Women’s Aid services and to other domestic violence support services and refuges nationwide. The National Helpline is free of charge to callers in the Republic of Ireland.
One in five women are affected by domestic violence in Ireland. Each year, Women’s Aid supports thousands of women living with domestic violence. Their resources are over-stretched. But they are determined to keep going, to keep answering the phone day and night. They know how important it is to be there for women. One caller summed it up perfectly saying “for the first time in my life I was able to tell someone what was happening. Women’s Aid didn’t judge or blame me. They listened.”
Women's Aid responded to over 18,000 calls to the 24hr Helpline last year. Think of all those voices, desperate for help in the middle of the night and the early morning. Afraid, vulnerable women, who needed someone. Someone to answer the phone to them. Someone to listen, believe and support them.
