About

The Jersey Women’s Refuge was founded in 1988, with support from Soroptimists International of Jersey, to provide a safe place for women and children to go who are victims of domestic abuse.

As the only independent domestic violence charity in Jersey, the Women’s Refuge provides a 24-hour, confidential service, which offers practical and emotional support to women and children suffering from abuse.

The Refuge employs five residential support workers and two outreach support workers who are trained and experienced in supporting women and children who have experienced abuse. Our support staff are qualified as Domestic Abuse Prevention Advocates which is a nationally recognised qualification for professionals working with victims of domestic abuse.

Domestic Violence is any form of physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse which is used to gain power and control over the other person in an intimate relationship.

Women often say emotional abuse is worse than physical abuse as it leaves no visible scars, is difficult to prove and can be very damaging.

Children living with domestic violence can also suffer in a variety of ways; either by witnessing violence itself, by being used as emotional pawns or indirectly by the stress suffered by their mother.
