2023 marks Edinburgh Women's Aid's 50th Anniversary

We are planning a series of year-long events to mark 50 years of providing support for tens of thousands of women and their children who have experience of domestic abuse.

An anonymous donor will be matching every £ donated of the first £10,000 -- if you donate £50, EWA will get £100!

Events planned throughout the year will highlight and pay tribute to those who have provided support for women and their families over the past five decades, with everything from giving them a safe place to stay in a refuge, to specialist housing support, legal advice and help securing employment.
