Bury St Edmunds Women’s Aid Centre

Bury St Edmunds Womens Aid Centre (the Refuge) was established in 1974 to provide safety and support for women and children experiencing Domestic Abuse.


We’ve been incredibly fortunate over the last few weeks with donations, particularly of the financial variety. Lots of these donations have been anonymous, so we’d just like to say a BIG thank you to all of you! Every single penny will make a difference to the families that we help, both in refuge and within the community. THANK YOU!

Bury St Edmunds Women’s Aid Centre Helpline 01284 753085

As Covid-19 restrictions continue to ease we’d like you to know we are still operating in a way that keeps both clients and staff safe. Refuge referrals are still welcome as and when we have a vacancy, and groups are starting to re-open on a face to face basis. If you are on the waiting list for a group or any other type of support, please be patient, we will get to you! Groups are smaller for the time being, which means it might take us a bit longer to give you a start date.

If you need help, advice or support please call our helpline – 01284 753085
