Annual Report 2011-2012. Celebrating 35 years.

Scottish Women’s Aid celebrated its 35th anniversary this year. Over the last 35 years we’ve worked hard to make positive changes on behalf of women, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse. We’ve lobbied for legislation, like the Matrimonial Homes Act and Forced Marriage Bill; we’ve worked to support the participation of children, young people and women in our work on CEDAR (Children Experiencing Domestic Abuse Recovery), Listen Louder and the National Outcomes Evaluation Project. Together with our members, we’ve worked to raise awareness of the impact of domestic abuse on children and young people through training police, children’s panel members and health practitioners.

We’ve campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness of the prevalence of domestic abuse, to show that any woman can be affected by it, any man can be the perpetrator of it, and that every single one of us can do something about it. Over the last 35 years, we’ve seen some huge changes, and we’re proud to have been part of this.
