Measuring the impact of funding cuts on domestic abuse services for women and children in Scotland

Each year, Scottish Women's Aid surveys its members to create a picture of the funding situation for their services, which range from crisis intervention and refuge, to outreach and drop in clinics. Our other research, such as the Census Day survey, highlights the demand for these services, so it is continually alarming to find that many of our groups are in a position of making cuts as a direct result of reduced funding.

Census Day 2013

For the 5th consecutive year, SWA completed its annual 24-hour snapshot of the demand for Women’s Aid services throughout Scotland.  Census Day 2013 was on Wednesday, 18th September, and this year 35 of our 36 affiliated members took part.  Our focus this year is on the broad range of services Women’s Aid provided in just one day to meet the complex safety and support needs of individual women, children, and young people.

Census Day 2012

Each year we carry out a review of service demand experienced by our member groups throughout Scotland. Census Day 2012 was conducted on 18 September 2012, and this year outlined the broad range of services provided for and requested by women and their families who are experiencing domestic abuse.

On the survey day, more than two thirds of service users were not in refuge, but accessed outreach services such as practical and emotional support, and general information about domestic abuse, other services and legal rights.
