Success stories

We’re extremely grateful for those who have bravely shared the following stories, which highlight how we can help.

Your refuge gave me the first and only opportunity to escape the abuse my children and I were still part of. As I lived near the children’s father I felt I couldn’t escape them not seeing him, and after a year of being around him with the kids every Saturday my mental health completely plummeted.

Domestic abuse survivor

I cant believe how helpful Perth Womens Aid have been, if all organisations worked the way we do with a multi agency approach then outcomes for migrant women with no recourse to public funds who are fleeing abuse could be so different.

Service user

The refuge meant I could go no contact, get us all out of the misery and despair and start a new chapter of our lives together, safely.

Domestic abuse survivor

The refuge is our safe home, our sanctuary. The flat is beautiful, full of light, with thoughtful pictures, bedding, and so much more including a fabulous garden the boys enjoy running about where I can watch them safely.

Elizabeth Sofia

Honestly, the refuge was the only way we could escape and start living in much less fear, upset and pain.

Domestic abuse survivor

The boys love this flat, and don’t want to leave! The support has been incredible. You ALL make me feel part of a wider family and network of friends and support.

Domestic abuse survivor

The refuge allowed us to escape, and feel SAFE after several years of an abusive house.

Domestic abuse survivor

It's the first time in a long time that I have ever felt free if that makes any sense.

You saved my life.

Domestic violence survivor

For the first time in years I feel safe in my own home, I know how to protect myself.

Domestic abuse survivor

I would like to thank you. As a victim of abuse I found it really helpful and learned a lot. I can now recognise abusive personalities and avoid to put myself in abusive relationships in the future. It helped me understand what I’ve been living in and why it was so wrong. Also I have learned to see early signs of abuse. Thank you so much to Women’s Aid Perth for letting supporting me in my native language of Polish. There are so many women who will get benefit of it as they struggle with English and also talking about feelings in my own language is more comfortable.
