Welcome to the Domestic Abuse Project

The Domestic Abuse Project is an organisation dedicated to alleviating the suffering of women and their families who are or who have experienced domestic abuse. 

Founded in 2000 the work focuses on providing support, guidance and development primarily for women to assist them in changing their circumstances.

The project believes passionately in human rights and targets resources to make a real difference for women and their families.

The Project provides a community response to domestic abuse and works in partnership with other statutory & voluntary agencies to ensure that the response meets the need as identified by local women.

This website has been developed to provide you with information about our work, domestic abuse and support for people who are, or who have experienced domestic abuse.

The Domestic Abuse Project adopts a needs led approach which recognises that each family has differing needs and there is no "one size fits all" solution. Based in the local community centre our service is provided in a low key easily accessible setting.

Working in partnership with statutory agencies and other voluntary organisations the project has successfully developed services to help women and children in South East Glasgow area of Glasgow. In the past three years the project has helped around 100 people each year to address issues of domestic abuse and has developed the following service profile; information, guidance, one to one support, small cell group work, personal development, training, access to services, agency assistance and feedback.

In addition to development of inter-agency policies and protocol we have set up a self-help group W.A.V.E.S. The aim of the group is to empower women to address local issues, including domestic abuse and health issues, overcoming the drawbacks of poverty, isolation and low self-esteem.

To date 90% of clients have gained volunteering positions and employment and progressed to becoming interdependent within their community, regaining control of their lives and successfully managing responsibilities for their children and home within the area of their choice.

The project intends to develop services in the identified areas according to the needs of local women. Such services include: support, guidance, information and training and development for women to assist them in changing or coping better with their circumstances.
