Domestic Violence Refuge
PO Box 3918
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.
Gilgal staff are available at the refuge at all times including evenings, overnights, weekends and public holidays. This is to maximize safety & security, ensure residents’ support needs are met and deal with any emergency or admission which occurs out of hours.
Women are welcome from all backgrounds. We aim to provide a quality and sensitive service in a safe environment which is based on safety, freedom, equality, respect and empowerment.
We do our utmost during women's stay at Gilgal to support without creating dependency. Our aim is to equip women with skills to enable them to move on in confidence and take their rightful place back in the community. Gilgal Staff assist the women with grant applications and obtaining furniture to furnish their new homes. We aim to offer support throughout the moving process, assisting women to settle into their new community. Our Children's Worker offers a similar service to ensure children's needs are not forgotten.
