Peterborough Women's Aid aims to relieve the distress and trauma experienced by women and their children, if any, who have been affected by their domestic violent situations.

We recognise that women and children have a right to live their lives free from fear of domestic violence and abuse, and society has a duty to recognise and defend this right.

Women's Aid is committed to the principles of self help and self determination; we encourage women to seek advice, information, support or refuge to determine their own futures.

Definitions of Domestic Violence
Women's Aid defines domestic violence and abuse as "physical, sexual, psychological or financial violence that takes place within an intimate or family-type relationship and that forms a pattern of coercive and controlling behaviour. This can include forced marriage and so-called 'honour crimes'. Domestic violence may include a range of abusive behaviours, not all of which are in themselves inherently 'violent'."
'Thank you so much for all you've done for us over the last few months. I can't quite believe I have a fresh start and I'm able to look forward to being happy again. If it was not for all of you, I'm not sure I could have ever felt like that again. Thank you.'Resident 2009
