    Dates of existence

    1982 -


    Strathkelvin Women’s Aid began in Spring 1982 as a women’s discussion group, after an advert was placed in Spare Rib in February of 1982. After a few meetings the group decided to concentrate on providing a service for victims of domestic violence and became affiliated with Scottish Women’s aid in August 1982.

    In March 1996, the group changed their name to East Dunbartonshire Women's Aid, to reflect the reorganisation of the local government and the demise of the Strathkelvin District and a new Refuge was built by Cairn Housing Association in 1997. The National Lottery Charities Board gave a grant to furnish the new Refuge.
