Womens Support Project

About Us

The Women’s Support Project aims to raise awareness of the extent and effects of violence against women and children, and works to improve services for those affected by violence. Key themes in our work have been highlighting links between different forms of male violence and promoting an interagency response to the abuse of women and children. Our work is informed by a feminist analysis of male violence and an understanding of the links and overlaps between different forms of violence, discrimination and oppression.

The Project was established in 1983 and is a voluntary organisation recognised as a Scottish charity (SCO 21846)

Our main areas of work are:

  • Raising awareness of the harm caused by commercial sexual exploitation and highlighting male demand as a root cause
  • Glasgow based `Rights & Choices` project, working with migrant, refugee and asylum seeking women who are socially isolated and / or have experienced violence
  • Multi-agency and in-house training service
  • Public education
  • Multi-agency and partnership working at local and national level
  • Fundraising

Please note that as a result of funding cuts we are no longer able to offer individual support services.

Opening hours.
We work office hours, with some evening work.  We are a small team, working across Scotland, so we are not always office based.  If you leave a message or email us we will get back to you as soon as possible.

We have various sources of funding. We currently receive funding from the  Scottish Government Violence Against Women & Girls Fund to support national capacity building for work on violence against women, including work around building capacity for practitioner training and around commercial sexual exploitation and harmful traditional practices, such as FGM.   Our Glasgow based Rights & Choices Project is funded by the Wellbeing for Longer Fund, and also supported by the Volunteer Support Fund. We use grants from charitable trusts, donations from individuals, and fundraising, to fund other areas of work.
