East Dunbartonshire Women’s Aid

East Dunbartonshire Women’s Aid provides refuge, information and support services for women, children and young people in the East Dunbartonshire area who have experienced, or who are currently experiencing, domestic abuse. This may take the form of emotional, physical, sexual or financial abuse.

We know that women want to be believed, not to be judged, to know there is a way out of abuse and that they have choices. The core values under which we work are developed from what women have told us would be most helpful to them.

Please get in touch with us on 0141 776 0864 or email edwomensaid@aol.com

Please note that we have a waiting list for support at the moment and normally discuss all new referrals on a weekly basis with a view to allocating a support worker as soon as we can.

Our office hours are Monday to Friday, 9am until 4:30pm

Important Update: Support Availability

We deeply regret to inform you that due to our current staffing levels, we are experiencing a waiting list for support services. Currently, the waiting list is approximately 2-3 weeks based on the number of new referrals we are receiving. 
Additionally, we currently have no refuge availability and a lengthy waiting list for these services as well. 
We understand the critical importance of timely assistance, and we are working diligently to address these issues through active recruitment efforts.
Our priority is to ensure that women and children in crisis receive the immediate support they need. 
We are committed to reducing and ultimately eliminating the waiting list as quickly as possible.
