Welcome to our website

WightDASH – formerly the Isle of Wight Women’s Refuge, supports women and children who are experiencing domestic violence via a wide range of services including refuge, community outreach programmes, advocacy and the Freedom Programme.

Our aim is to advise and ensure that women have the help and information they need to escape domestic violence and to provide on- going services to support their decision. We have highly qualified staff on hand to respond to the individual needs of every woman and child and to strive towards the best possible outcome, whatever their situation.

Our telephone line is answered 24 hours a day, every day and we give practical advice and support over the phone. Our refuge provides emergency accommodation and we have specialist staff on hand to provide support and we can assist with guidance for women going through civil and criminal court cases. Of course, some women may not chose to leave their home and so our outreach workers will meet women in a safe place to discuss their plans and provide emotional support.

We'll be adding more to our website very soon so do come and check us out again!
