Welcome to Women’s Aid Leicestershire Ltd

Women’s Aid Leicestershire Ltd is a unique service provider accompanying domestic abuse and sexual violence survivors on every step of their journey whilst also working to prevent future violence.

Women’s Aid Leicestershire Limited was established in 1974 when we opened the first refuge in Leicester to support women and children fleeing domestic abuse. Since then we have continued to provide vital assistance to all victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence. Our work continues to be as important now as it was when we first began.
