10 October, 2013

Women’s Aid is the lead agency offering support and refuge services to women and children who have or are currently experiencing domestic violence and abuse.  For almost 6 years, Women’s Aid has occupied premises in Monkstown Village Centre where the local and wider community in Newtownabbey have been able to access support.

Women’s Aid has further developed its services in order to meet the needs of those who require support and have acquired larger premises.  From 1st November 2013, Women’s Aid will be based at Unit 5a Lesley House, 1-9 Carnmoney Road, Glengormley. 

Ase McWilliams, Floating Support Worker for the Newtownabbey area said “We hope these larger premises in Glengormley will help to develop service delivery and we remain committed to providing support to anyone who accesses our services across the whole of Newtownabbey”.  Grace McGurk, Community Resettlement Worker added, “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Alan Johnston and the team in Monkstown Village Centre for their help and support over the past number of years”.

Support can be accessed locally by calling 07851966517 or 07821402024, the 24hr Domestic & Sexual Violence Helpline on 0808 802 1414 (Open to all women and men affected by domestic and sexual violence) or read about our services by visiting www.womens-aid.org.uk
