If you need a safe place to stay, Fife Women’s Aid can provide you with refuge accommodation or assist you in accessing alternative temporary accommodation.
We have a number of refuges in various locations throughout Fife. Each refuge is self contained which means you do not have to share with another family. Refuge is offered to both single women and women with dependent children.
All refuges are furnished to a high standard and fully equipped with bedding, kitchen utensils, TV etc. You will receive basic foods and toiletries when coming into refuge. You will also be allocated a support worker who will help you with benefits, appointments, housing applications etc.
Refuges are ‘safe houses’ so the address must be kept confidential, however you can have two named female visitors when staying in refuge. Unfortunately we do not allow pets in refuge.
Women's Aid has refuges throughout the UK so if you feel Fife is not safe then we will establish if there is a space in another area.
