Founded in 1976, Scottish Women's Aid was established to provide a national voice for regional Women's Aid groups around Scotland. The first women's aid groups were established in 1973, beginning in Glasgow and Edinburgh, as grassroots feminist organizations providing support and temporary housing for women and children experiencing domestic violence. Since the 1970s, many more women's aid groups have been founded and continue to operate throughout Scotland.
