Why We Are Needed

Why are we needed?

Domestic abuse, whether physical, sexual or emotional, occurs throughout our society. Abusers come from all social, ethnic and economic groups.

Many people are surprised that there is a need for such a service in rural Fife but any woman can be abused and it usually happens behind closed doors.

It is important that all women, children and young people within our community have the option of seeking help and support.

Experiences of Women & Children

Many women, who have experience of domestic abuse, have had no control over their lives for many years. They may never have had to make a decision regarding themselves, their children or home for a long time. Women and children also face the prospect of establishing themselves into a new community or school. This can be a daunting prospect, if you have not been allowed to have contact with your family or friends for so long. You lose self-respect and self esteem. Along with practical advice and support, the FWA workers will support women and children to become independent and confident as they can in all that they do.
