Womens Support Project

The Women’s Support Project is a feminist voluntary organisation, recognised as a Scottish Charity. The Project works to raise awareness of the extent, causes and effect of male violence against women, and for improved services for those affected by violence.

Key themes in our work have been highlighting the links between different forms of male violence and promoting interagency responses to the abuse of women and children.

Main areas of work are:  raising awareness of the harmful impact of commercial sexual exploitation and highlighting male demand as the root cause; improving service responses to violence against women including delivery of training; public education; information and resources, including an on-line directory of support services across Scotland.

The Project is based in Glasgow and works across Scotland.
