Here at Juno Women’s Aid, what we do is important. We save lives. In the UK 1 in 3 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime and in Nottingham we are here to support those women and children experiencing or escaping it.
We are the sixth largest accredited domestic abuse charity in England. We’ve been around for almost 40 years and in that time, we’ve built up a real depth of knowledge. We currently have 85 employees and an annual turnover in the region of £2m.
Juno Women’s Aid is an ambitious and resourceful charity, passionate about helping women and their children move forward to live their lives free from abuse. In a year, we answer around 10,000 calls on our helpline, support over 6,000 women and 260 children.
