Black Country Women's Aid

Black Country Women's Aid

Black Country Women's Aid (formely known as Sandwell Women's Aid) is an independent charity which has supported survivors of abuse and exploitation in the West Midlands for 30 years. Our sensitive and holistic support helps over 8000 victims of abuse each year to escape from violence, cope with trauma and rebuild their lives. We believe that no one should have to live in fear of violence and abuse. We listen, we support, we care.

Our diverse range of services include: domestic abuse, refuge and community support; rape and sexual and child abuse; forced marriage and honour based violence. Children and young people's services, therapeutic services and support for female offenders and women with complex needs.

We also provide the West Midlands Stalking Support Service (part of Black Country Women’s Aid). The service aims to provide advocacy, advice and guidance to those affected by this unnerving and frightening crime.
