About Us

Our Philosophy of Care

The Bray Womens Refuge upholds a philosophy of mutual self help and empowerment. Our Philosophy of care underpins the way we work with clients which is

  • Non judgemental
  • Unconditional
  • And always with positive regard no matter what the client’s story is

The ethos of the Women;s Refuge is a developmental one

  • We aim to support and assist women and children to recover from the trauma of violence and abuse
  • We assist women to regain their strength in order to be able to make their own decisions about what is right for them in their lives

Our staff are trained to uphold the highest level of confidentiality and to provide a professional service to clients seeking our support.

To be effective Domestic Violence Support Organisations must model relationships of equality and fairness and re-conceptualise power in a way that distinguishes between creative power and violating power. Women who have experienced Domestic Violence have experienced an abuse of power so services cannot replicate this!

Bray Women’s Refuge is committed to upholding this philosophy in it’s service provision
