EVA Women’s Aid
Shortlist – Embracing Opportunity and Harnessing Risk
Who they are
EVA Women’s Aid provide a range of free, confidential and non-judgemental specialist support services for women and children who have been affected by any form of domestic abuse and/or sexual violence.
What they’ve achieved
For EVA Women’s Aid, standing still is never an option. So, when trustees recognised the need for a Safe House aimed at older women, they worked hard to make it happen.
Harnessing professional research, financial and housing skills from across their board, each part of the project was carefully scrutinised to ensure its success. They opened the Safe House in 2015, and it’s been at 100% capacity ever since.
