About Us

This page has been created to raise awareness of Lighthouse Women's Aid and the help that is available to women and children who have been affected by domestic abuse or violence.

Lighthouse Women’s Aid is a charitable organisation based in Suffolk, UK, providing emotional support and care to women and their children experiencing domestic abuse in their personal or family relationships.

We offer temporary accommodation in safe and supportive refuges where women and their children can recover from the traumatic effects of domestic violence and make informed choices. We also offer a range of community services, courses and counselling to support women and children to rebuild their lives after abuse.

We have been providing safe and supportive refuge in Ipswich since 1976.

'Our mission is to support and empower women and children affected by domestic abuse or violence.'

'We aim to do this by raising awareness, providing a safe, supportive environment and by developing and implementing preventative and therapeutic services.'

If you need immediate help and support, please call our 24hr helpline 01473 745 111. If you would like to make an appointment for advice please call our centre 01473 228 270.
