About Us

SAFE Ireland is the only national organisation representing frontline domestic violence services in Ireland (including refuges).

Our work focuses on centre staging and representing the needs and experiences of women and their children affected by domestic violence. We have a leading role in researching and disseminating good practice to our members, other professionals and statutory bodies as well as giving public voice of victim’s experiences and the enormity and extent of domestic violence in our country.

SAFE Ireland is a national membership led organisation. We currently have 40 members who provide domestic violence support services across 26 counties in Ireland.

We want to see that the needs of women and children experiencing domestic violence are met and that civic society takes responsibility for the eradication of violence against women. We work in collaboration with our members, allies, government departments, state agencies and relevant stakeholders to progress our change agenda.
