Broxtowe Women’s Project was set up in January 2001 to provide an information and support service for women living in Broxtowe who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse.
The Project was developed by Broxtowe Women’s Issues Network, a group of women and men from various agencies focusing on women’s issues in the Broxtowe Borough, particularly domestic abuse. They identified a gap in resources and created Broxtowe Women’s Project to provide much needed support to families and children experiencing domestic abuse.
The Project became a full member of Women’s Aid Federation of England in 2005 and is a women only organisation. On February 1st 2009, the Project became a company limited by guarantee.
The work we do is only posible thanks to the many funders who support us. We would like to thank our funders both past and present for helping to sustain our service.
