West Mercia Women’s Aid understands that violence against women is both a cause and a consequence of women’s unequal position in society.

Vision

Is a world free from domestic abuse and violence against women and children, where everyone can live without the fear and reality of all forms of violence, abuse, and discrimination.

Mission

To reduce the incidence of domestic abuse and other forms of violence in West Mercia, perpetrated primarily by men, by providing support, protection and prevention services that empower victims and survivors to break free from violence and abuse.

Aims

  • To provide specialist advice, support and protection to those who have been affected by domestic, and other forms of, violence and abuse.
  • To work strategically with other agencies to ensure effective responses to viWomen arms crossedolence and abuse.
  • To educate and train agencies and the general public on the extent of violence and abuse against women and children, its causes and effects, and how it can be prevented.
  • To maintain effective, ethical and sustainable structures and policies capable of supporting the activities and values of West Mercia Women’s Aid.

    • Women’s right to express themselves and have their voices heard
    • Mutual respect and non-judgemental behaviour
    • Individual responsibility, choice and empowerment
    • Being open and inclusive to all women and their children who experience domestic abuse
    • Putting the needs of women and children who experience domestic abuse at the heart of what we do.
