About Us

East Dunbartonshire Women’s Aid has been providing services to women, children and young people since 1982.

Our main objective is to provide a complete, all-encompassing and flexible service, which respects the rights, and responds to the needs, of the women, children and young people involved.  We also aim to empower women to take control of their lives and make decisions about their own futures.
