We are the only dedicated refuge in Cumbria offering safe emergency accommodation to women and children fleeing domestic abuse.

We have seven bedrooms that each have a lockable door, a large, bright communal lounge, kitchen and a small but beautiful garden.

If you come to live in our refuge you will be allocated a specialist domestic abuse support worker who will support you in your recovery via 1:1 support. You will be given practical help with benefits, housing, criminal and civil proceedings as well as anything else you might need to rebuild your life.

shattered by domestic abuse

I can’t thank you enough for all the help and support you’ve given me. You’ve made a massive difference to my life and helped me stand on my own two feet. I will always remember your kindness and all the work you put in to help me’.
