A Specialist Domestic Abuse Charity
We are a specialist domestic abuse charity and currently support over 8,000 adults, children and young people every year in Norfolk. It is our primary aim to offer advice, support and information to anyone who has been or is currently experiencing domestic violence.
Established in Norfolk in 1974, we were founding members of WAFE (Women’s Aid Federation England).

We have since expanded the services we offer to meet the needs of all women, men and children who experience domestic abuse.
We define domestic violence as any abuse that takes place within an intimate or family relationship. This abuse can be of a psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional nature. Signs that someone may be experiencing domestic violence can include:
