Covering the areas of Antrim, Ballymena, Carrickfergus, Larne and Newtownabbey, Board Chair, Anne McAllister commented,

“Gillian brings a wealth leadership experience from across diverse sectors and an excellent track record of developing talent and growing organisations. We are delighted to welcome Gillian to Women’s Aid ABCLN and look forward to supporting her in the role.”

The incredibly dedicated and skillful team is passionate about delivering high quality services in order to make it easier for women to ask for help and find the support they need.”

“I am privileged to further the mission of working towards a society where women and children can live free from the threat of abuse and I look forward to working within a team determined to bring back hope and empowerment.”

Women’s Aid ABCLN provides confidential support, information and emergency accommodation for women and children who are affected by domestic abuse.
