‘The solidarity of women is crucial to the formation, development and day-to-day running of Women’s Aid in Scotland’ (Women’s Aid Speaking Out Project). Early in the Women’s Aid movement ‘women helping women helping women’ became a motto and working principle, and working together has remained the central tenet to the work Women’s Aid continues to do today.
Grampian Women’s Aid, based in Aberdeen, offers a free and confidential specialist service to women, children and young people in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire who have experienced domestic abuse. Members heard from the organisation’s Prevention and Fundraising Lead who spoke of the invaluable group work done with women over the last two years. President Ruth thanked her for her inspiring talk. A donation will be made to Grampian Women’s Aid as part of our annual distribution of funds.http://www.grampian-women’s-aid.com
