We provide safe and secure emergency accommodation for women and children fleeing Domestic Violence and Abuse.
Each resident, along with their children (if needed) are accommodated in either their own en-suite bedroom with communal living/kitchen areas or an individual apartment with separate kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
We have 11 family spaces, across two sites in South-West Dublin to meet the needs of families big and small, or women without children.
Residents are free to come and go throughout the day while maintaining routines for work, school, college, etc. We do operate a nightly curfew to ensure all refuge spaces are used if needed. Rooms are locked so belongings are safe. We operate a no illegal drugs or alcohol policy in our refuges.
Refuge services provided:
- Support staff on site 24 / 7 providing emotional & practical supports
- Dedicated Childcare support staff on site & access to play spaces
- Client-led, one-on-one care planning with dedicated staff
- Referral to appropriate services / agencies as part of your care plan
