Wycombe Women’s Aid is a registered charity working in the Wycombe, South Bucks and Chiltern Districts of Buckinghamshire. We work with women and children who are experiencing or trying to escape domestic violence and who are dealing with its effects and consequences.
If you need help NOW, please telephone our Helpline – 01494 461367. This helpline operates between 9.00am and 4.30pm Monday – Friday. Outside of these times, the National Domestic Violence Helpline offers a 24 hour support and information service on 0808 2000 247. In an emergency telephone the Police – 999.
“Wycombe Women’s Aid provides support to women and children experiencing the effects of domestic violence by offering safe, temporary and emergency accommodation as well as practical and emotional support within the refuge and through Outreach in the local community. This is achieved using an equal opportunities approach incorporated in a women centred philosophy.”
