GLASGOW WOMEN’S AID
Glasgow Women’s Aid
Our 2020 Charitable Partner
GUCFS is proud to be supporting Glasgow Women’s Aid, a charity that works to support women, children and young people who are experiencing domestic abuse in Glasgow. Founded over 35 years ago, Glasgow Women’s Aid provide information, support and temporary refuge, and strives to create lives free from violence. The charity currently has a drop in service from Monday to Friday, as well as providing 37 safe spaces for women and their children within Glasgow. These include self contained flats, shared accommodation and satellite flats, in which the majority have offices on site to provide maximum support. By providing them with essential information, temporary refuge and safety, Glasgow Women’s Aid help women and young children to escape situations of domestic abuse and support them in their recovery. There is an ever growing need for more safe spaces for women and children, and the money that will be raised by GUCFS 2020 will go towards extending the services that Glasgow Women’s Aid can provide.
1 IN 4 WOMEN EXPERIENCE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN THEIR LIFETIME
Where our fundraising goes
