"Providing refuge accommodation to families fleeing domestic abuse, outreach services in W.Kent, support for children and young people & hostel for young people"

from their website
"NKWA (previously known as Dartford & Gravesham Women's Aid) was established in 1996 and exists to provide help to all those who are experiencing domestic abuse.

How We Can Help

We will listen to what you have to say
We will be supportive and non judgemental
We will give you information about options available to you so that you can make an informed decision about your future
We can advise you about refuge accommodation locally and nationally
We can signpost other agencies who can help
We can reassure you that it is not your fault
We run four refuges in North Kent providing secure, temporary accommodation for women and their children who have had to leave their home as a result of domestic abuse.
We provide community support services to men, women and children in Dartford, Gravesham, Sevenoaks, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge & Malling, and Medway.

In February 2011 we opened hostel accommodation for homeless single young people aged between 16 and 25 years old.

You can access our community services via our Helpline (for North Kent)0800 917 9948, and for other areas via our Maidstone office tel no 01622 761146. Refuge accommodation referrals will be taken from any part of the country.
For information regarding domestic abuse support services throughout Kent and Medway visit the website www.domesticabuseservices.org.uk If you live outside Kent and Medway you can find your local group by visiting the website of the national organisation the Women's Federation of England.

Abuse takes many forms - it is not just physical and can include verbal, psychological, emotional, sexual and financial. It can occur between any family members or even those who are simply living in the same house. The impact on an individual can be devastating leaving someone feeling worthless and helpless.

Other services we provide are:
Education and Awareness raising in schools
One Stop Shops offering support & advice to men and women in Dartford, Gravesham, Swanley, Maidstone and Medway
Freedom Programme
Training in Domestic Abuse awareness for professionals
Outreach support and advice to anyone who needs our services"
