Gilgal is a safe house, at a confidential address providing short-term emergency accommodation & support to women and their children, who are escaping domestic violence.

The House: Accommodation at Gilgal is shared and residents have their own bedroom and food cupboard which are lockable, but apart from this, every other facility is shared. All areas of the house are comfortably furnished and include a TV and all household appliances.

The bedrooms are prepared in advance of arrival. They have all the usual bedroom furniture as well as a hand wash basin with vanity units, colour TV and fridge. Fresh towels, toiletries and age appropriate toys are put into each room so women and children have some essentials no matter how little they bring with them.

There is a private, secure garden at the rear of the house with outdoor play equipment for the children. In addition there is a play room where children's indoor activities take place. Staff are available 24 hours a day to provide support and security.
