Supporting women and children who have experienced or are experiencing domestic abuse

Women’s Aid in Luton has its roots in the feminist movement of the 1970s, which developed women’s refuges as safe places for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. They have been delivering psychological and trauma-informed services to meet the needs of women and child survivors of domestic abuse for 50 years.

 

Their aims are to provide:

 

  • Refuge accommodation where women and children may feel safe and receive protection from abuse and persecution.

  • Support to access medical care, advice and treatment, legal advice and counselling.

  • Community support via their Domestic Abuse Helpline and resettlement services.

  • Training and education opportunities for survivors of domestic abuse.

  • Campaigns to raise the profile of the impact of domestic abuse and highlight the need for further support services.

For their 50th year anniversary, they are launching a year-long appeal called #50for50 to raise £50,000. This money will be used to improve their five refuges, providing better environments for women and children escaping domestic abuse. For more information on how you can help, click here.

Herstorical tours are guided walking tours with a difference. Created and led by women only, our tours focus on women's stories in London's history and bring those stories to life using acting, comedy and fun!  With a special focus on the dark and curious underbelly of London's past along with the 'forgotten' women - we explore the hidden nooks and crannies of the city whilst introducing you to the characters that created 'herstory' there -  from witches to harlots. Our tours aim to educate on sensitive historical subjects with the right balance of respect and entertainment.

 

Votes for Women! Suffragettes at Bow Street and Beyond  

In proud association with the Bow Street Police Museum, allow Herstorical Tours to transport you back to Edwardian London, and retrace the footsteps (quite literally!) of the suffragettes who marched, preached, fought, smashed, burned and bombed their way to getting women the vote.  From Westminster to Covent Garden, this guided theatrical tour will introduce you to lesser known characters in the movement such as actresses and Music Hall stars, disabled and working class women, and even royalty.
