Womens Support Project


The Project holds a range of written resources on violence against women and children.

Materials include survivors’ writings, self help manuals, academic research, guidelines for good practice, resources for group work, and materials suitable for children and young people. We have some resources aimed at men and boys who have suffered sexual violence, and for the partners and friends of survivors of violence.

As a result of staffing cuts we are no longer able to lend materials, other than DVD`s for training purposes.  We will offer reference access whenever resources allow  - please contact us if you are interested in accessing the materials

If you would like to borrow any of the DVD`s for training purposes please contact us.
