Our Mission, Vision & Values

Our Mission

To provide safe, supportive and confidential services for women and children experiencing domestic violence.

Our Vision

Our vision is to reach and support an ever increasing number of families in Irish Society, who deserve respect, dignity, safety and freedom from domestic violence. Through our team of professional, caring and committed people our primary focus remains our commitment to continuous improvement in all aspects of our operations and the services we offer to our clients and the community.

Our Values

We believe that …

  • Nobody deserves to be abused
  • No person should ever have to experience the torture of being abused by a ‘loved one’
  • No one should be alone in carrying the burden of blame, shame and judgment perpetrated upon them
  • Early educational interventions with young people entering intimate relationships are key to combating domestic violence in future generations and breaking the cycle of violence

We acknowledge that …

  • Domestic violence is a serious and life destroying crime for which the client is never responsible
  • Is a cycle of abuse that only escalates with time
  • Occurs in all walks of life – all classes, creeds, ages and races
  • Is an unequal balance of power and control that an individual holds over another in any intimate or close family relationship – husband and wife, same sex partners or adult children and an elder parent
  • Takes many forms including physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, financial abuse and coercive control

 We commit to …

  • Empowering our clients and facilitating them in having a voice
  • Listening, hearing, believing and respecting those who contact us for help whether they plan to leave an abusive relationship or seek support in staying safe in the relationship
  • Working in a non-judgmental environment supporting clients – only they know the reality of their abuse
  • Maintaining a confidential service for all our clients and ensuring that we always work according to Children First
