Women and Families

For women, children, young people and those parenting.

RISE can help if you are a woman who is scared or isolated because of an abusive partner, ex-partner or family member, or if you are worried about your family situation.

We offer parenting support for women whose lives have been affected by domestic abuse.


For advice, information or support call the RISE Helpline on Freephone 0300 323 9985. Calls are answered by women trained to support you, your family or your client.  They will guide you through your options and help you make safe choices.

Women’s Aid and Refuge operate a national domestic violence helpline on 0808 2000 247.

If you or someone you know is in danger call 999.
