The services of Amber Women’s Refuge will be temporarily relocated from 1st October 2021 until the end of November. This is to facilitate a much needed redevelopment project on our refuge building.
All of Amber’s services, including our Outreach services, will operate as normal. Alternative emergency refuge accommodation is in place for those fleeing domestic violence & abuse.
Amber’s confidential 24hr helpline remains in operation. If you experience a delay in someone answering your call please stay on the line, calls are being redirected therefore the connection can take a little longer.
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.
