Support to domestic violence victims from the Eastern European Community. Women-only service.

Housing for Women operates two support services in the London Borough of Ealing. We provide refuges for victims and survivors who are fleeing domestic abuse from outside the borough to live in our temporary supported accommodation.

We also offer outreach support to people who live in Ealing who are experiencing (or have experienced) domestic violence and abuse.

Our refuges provide a safe space for female victims and survivors, including their children. Our new Ealing Outreach service is a free and inclusive four-month program supporting victims living in the community who cannot or may not want to access refuge services. Housing for Women’s Outreach service supports all victims and survivors, including ethnic minorities, the LGBTQ+ community, men, children (if a parent/guardian is referred to us) and young adults over 16.

The Women’s Wellness Zone (WWZ) is a community-based specialist service for women over the age of 18 living in the London Borough of Ealing.

Our service assists women experiencing multiple complex support needs including substance misuse, mental health, domestic abuse, sex working, trafficking, and involvement in the criminal justice system.

The aim of the service is to holistically support women to achieve sustained recovery, improve their health and wellbeing and place in society.

The Women’s Wellness Zone has a main hub in Southall which provides a safe and comfortable space for women to access for both structured treatment and support.

The WWZ accepts self and professional referrals.

If you already receive support from either adults’ or children’s social services, your social worker may be able to help and advise you about any risk of violence or abuse.

This is more likely to be the case if you:

  • are elderly
  • are under the age of 18
  • have left care (or are about to do so)
  • are in poor health
  • have a physical or learning disability

Social services may be able to help and advise you about your situation and support you in finding accommodation.

Ealing social services can be contacted on 020 8825 8000.

If you are a male perpetrator of domestic abuse and/or worried about your behaviour you can get help.

The Men & Masculinities Programme is designed to support people who are aware that their behaviour is damaging or distressing within their relationships. The programme also supports female perpetrators and those in same sex relationships.

The 24-week programme explores what it means to display appropriate behaviour within relationships and highlights how conflict, aggression and anger can deeply impact the lives of others.

The programme focuses on behaviour, how we act, how this reinforces how we think and feel, and most importantly, how to act differently and make changes to our behaviour and the environments we create. It is also designed to support any other treatment you may be involved with.
