Jewish Womens Aid
Supporting Jewish Women affected by Domestic Violence

Our services

Empowering you

All JWA’s services aim to enable and empower you to take back control of your life.

And all our services are free and totally confidential.

Our trained staff will provide you with information, advice and support that is relevant to your own circumstances. Together, we will work to draw up a plan of support which suits your specific needs and requirements.


Supporting you confidentially


The services that we can offer women affected by abuse include:

Helpline – a confidential, non-judgemental, listening service 0808 801 0500

Community support – emotional and practical support from a dedicated key worker (including legal, welfare benefits, housing) while you consider your options

Refuge – safe, emergency accommodation in the only kosher observant refuge in Europe

Counselling – free, therapeutic sessions with trained counsellors

Children’s worker – individual sessions for children to help them come to terms with what they’ve seen and heard


Informing you

We will not judge or force our opinions on you, but we will make sure you are given objective advice and feel believed, never blamed.

We’ll help you to understand your options so you can make informed choices.

Services for the wider community


As well as offering services to individual women and their children, we also offer a range of services to the community as a whole, designed to improve awareness and understanding of domestic abuse and how to prevent it:


Education in schools – sessions in secondary schools on healthy, safe relationships and warning signs of abuse

Training  – basic and advanced domestic violence training for communal professionals

Talks – speakers available for community groups which would like to raise awareness of violence and abuse


About JWA

Jewish Women’s Aid (JWA) was founded to support the thousands of Jewish women who, each year, will face physical, emotional, psychological, sexual or financial abuse from within their own home. JWA is the only organisation in the UK dealing specifically with the needs of abused Jewish women and their children.
