This collection consists of records created by Scottish Women's Aid and local women's aid groups, including annual reports, newsletters, organisational records, promotional material, publications, and other ephemera. There is also a large series of news cuttings included in the collection that were collected by workers at Scottish Women's Aid, primarily from the mid-1970s to early 1990s. The collection also includes informational materials from related organisations used by staff at Scottish Women's Aid.

This collection is currently undergoing processing as part of the Speaking Out: Recalling Women's Aid in Scotland project (2015-2017) and a number of oral histories have been collected and will be added into the archive in late 2017.
