Who we are

The passion with which we approach our work to support survivors of domestic abuse sets Refuge apart. It is with care and support — combined with expertise and excellence — that our staff works to help each woman and child restore safety and dignity in their lives.

United against trauma, fear and abuse.

“Refuge is an amazing group of people and it is my privilege to lead them. My priority in the year ahead is to make sure everyone at Refuge feels supported, engaged, valued and able to bring their whole selves to their work. Our staff and volunteers have done something exceptional in this unbelievable year. And I know they will continue to support the women and children we serve with incredible dedication.”
