Women's Aid Orkney
We would like to redecorate our refuge flats and support rooms and make them into welcoming, safe spaces for women and children. We also aim to turn our garden into a social and beautiful space.

About this cause
We offer free and confidential support to women and children who have been affected by domestic abuse. The women's service is tailored to what women want and need. That could be someone to talk to in confidence, help to understand legal processes, or stress management techniques, etc. Our children and young people’s workers are here to listen and help girls and boys, aged 3-18.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Lockdown has created a spike in domestic abuse, so we would like to offer women and children living in our refuge a space where they can feel safe and at home. If we made our garden into a relaxing, beautiful environment, those living in the refuge could access it. Women could use the garden to socialise and do gardening. If we got outside games, our children's service could do group activities.
