        History

        Glasgow Women's Aid (GWA), established in 1973, was the second Women's Aid group in Scotland. Routed in second wave feminist ideologies, the group formed to offer support to women with experiences of domestic abuse. As the organisation grew, providing care for children and young people also became a central focus. Initially, GWA was driven by volunteers and donations, but now they receive funding through Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government. Currently, the group has six refuges throughout Glasgow, which provide space for 37 families.
