Domestic Abuse Support

Who are they?

My CWA are formerly known as Cheshire Without Abuse. They're a Cheshire-based charity supporting families affected by domestic abuse.

For more than 40 years, they’ve been working mainly with families in Cheshire East.

They cover Poynton and Wilmslow in the North, Macclesfield and Congleton in the centre and Crewe and Nantwich in the South – as well as their surrounding villages offering a whole family service.

Who they help

Domestic abuse can affect women and men of all ages and economic backgrounds. It can affect people from different cultures and traditionst .  It can also happen in any type of relationship – gay, straight, married or not, with or without children.

It can also affect wider families and friends. Our whole family service is designed to help everyone affected by domestic abuse.

How they help

They're trained to recognise the signs and symptoms of domestic abuse. They will assess the needs of your family members and help you respond to practical issues involving things like housing, legal aid and finances.

They can provide temporary, safe crisis accommodation for those in immediate danger who need to urgently escape from domestic abuse.

They run the Lily Jones Support Centre, where families can access drop-in advice, legal clinics and a range of support groups and recovery programmes.

They also offer counselling and specialist children’s support programmes.
