To access support from Umuada, we accept self referrals as well as agency referrals.

How we can help 

You will have a named keyworker who will support you with every step of your journey as well as a children’s worker to help with support around your children.

We have groups we run as well as coffee mornings and celebrations of special events such as Christmas and Eid.

We rely on you to help us to make changes and improvements to the service so will invite you to feedback as part of house meetings held monthly.


We have a communal refuge in a secure location with gated access as well as CCTV covering all areas of the main refuge. We also have properties in the local community for women and children who may be ready for a lower level of support.
