Jewish Women's Aid
Location: county wide
Jewish Women’s Aid is the only specialist organisation in the UK supporting Jewish women affected by domestic violence.
Wherever, whenever, whoever: we’re here to help you
One woman in four will experience domestic abuse in her lifetime.
It affects all women, regardless of age, education, class, lifestyle or religion; the Jewish community is no different to any other.
JWA has two core aims:
- To provide confidential, accessible, empowering and culturally sensitive advocacy and support for Jewish women and children affected by domestic violence.
- Through education, training and awareness raising, to ensure that all sectors of the Jewish community recognise and speak out against domestic violence.
The JWA helpline is a confidential, sympathetic, non–judgmental listening service. It is operated by trained Jewish women from 9.30am – 9.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Outside of these hours calls are recorded, monitored and responded to as soon as possible.
The helpline number is freephone 0808 801 0500. This means it is free to call from all landlines and mobiles. The number will not show up on your phone bill, but will be in your calls log on a mobile and some home phones, so please remember to delete it after your call. If you are concerned about this, please discuss with your helpliner.
