Amber Womens Refuge CLG. originally started as a support and information service in Loughboy, Kilkenny. It soon became evident that there was a need for a women’s refuge service in Kilkenny. This was set up soon after, and was eventually housed in a purpose built facility in November 2001 in Kilkenny.
Amber Womens Refuge CLG. caters for women and children from Carlow and Kilkenny. In 2016 we developed our outreach and court accompaniment service to reach those in rural areas seeking support and information.
At Amber Womens Refuge CLG., we provide many services helping women and children affected by domestic violence and abusive relationships.
