Jewish Women’s Aid

About Jewish Women’s AidJWA

Jewish Women’s Aid is the only UK charity working providing a culturally specific service for Jewish women and their children affected by domestic violence. The organisation has two principal 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.

JWA runs six core services: a freephone national helpline, a refuge (the only Shabbat and kosher observant refuge in Europe), a community advocacy and support service, a children’s worker, free counselling (face to face or via telephone) and education, training and awareness raising programmes.

Jewish Women’s Aid’s role within the consortium

It provides specialist support and counselling to Jewish women affected by domestic violence all over London, with a particular focus on Barnet, Camden, Hackney, Haringey and Redbridge.
