What started out as a refuge 30 years ago has grown expediently to
best meet women and children through each
stage of the cycle of domestic abuse. This includes access to not just a choice of service supports but a
wraparound delivery that takes a family from crisis to recovery. Today, Aoibhneas has grown from strength to
strength. Our 10-unit refuge underwent a refurbishment in 2014 and remains in operation in Dublin 17. In 2019
alone, Aoibhneas supported 1,226 women and children through access to
refuge, drop- in, court accompaniment
and outreach/ community. Further to this we received a further 8,181 calls to our 24/7 Helpline service.
