Children & Young Peoples Service (Edinburgh Women’s Aid)

Edinburgh Women’s Aid Children and Young People’s Service provides one to one and group work support to any child or young person who may have experienced Domestic Abuse.

Edinburgh Women’s Aid (EWA) helps children and young people by giving them a safe place to stay. Staff won’t force them to tell us about their experiences, but will lend a sympathetic ear if they want to talk about it and will listen to what they say. Edinburgh Women’s Aid also organise activities so children and young people can have some fun away from the misery of domestic abuse.

EWA can:

  • arrange confidential support at your school
  • help you work out difficult feelings and emotions
  • help you meet with other young people who have similar experiences
  • meet you as a one off, weekly, fortnightly or whatever is helpful
