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
  • 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.
