Cuanlee has a resilient, flexible, creative and highly skilled frontline staff to deal with the varied and often complex needs that families’ present with. They recognise the need to work therapeutically with women and children who are traumatised due to their exposure to violence. Social Care, Social Work, Counselling, Therapeutic Play Worker, Art Therapist, are part of the skill set of our energetic team.

Cuanlee Refuge provides safe and secure crisis accommodation for women and children experiencing domestic abuse. We help women who wish to move on and live independently, free from violence. Our professional staff are available to support women and children during their stay in the refuge. A non-judgmental, open and welcoming service is available to all women and children.

We recognise that not all women experiencing domestic abuse may need to, or even wish to avail of emergency accommodation.
