Keeping Women and Children Safe in Refuge Since 1974
We will create a culture that values, encourages and supports our staff and volunteers to find ways to help and inspire our residents to reflect upon their accomplishments and achieve their own aspirations – to ‘Thrive, Not Just Survive’.
We will ensure that everyone involved with the organisation has the necessary training and ongoing support needed to enable themselves and SWA to continue on a pathway of improvement to achieve our aspirations.
Sheffield Women’s Aid will strive to become a beacon of good practice in delivering trauma informed care within a Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE). This approach will be extended to our residents (women and their children), to our voluntary Board, paid staff and volunteers.
