This organization is a grassroots federation, with over 170 members providing over 300 lifesaving domestic abuse services in England and Wales, with sister federations operating across the UK. The forum is a safe, anonymous, online space for women who have been affected by domestic abuse which allows them to share their experiences and support one another. 


Supported Project

In 2023-2024, the UK subsidiary of L'OCCITANE en Provence is supporting the Women's Aid Federation of England in its project "Women's Aid Survivors' Forum". This initiative aims to provide an online community dedicated to empowering women who are victims of domestic violence.

Built on the principle that survivors are Experts by Experience, the forum facilitates mutual support. The trained staff at Women's Aid moderate to ensure the safety of women in need of help and prevent the disclosure of sensitive information (but signpost where appropriate). while providing guidance to appropriate resources as necessary.

The digital development of the platform operates within an agile framework, continuously adapting to meet the evolving needs of survivors. This online assistance offers a secure and anonymous space, with trained personnel guiding users to appropriate resources.
