Refuge Contact Numbers
At Amber Womens Refuge CLG., we provide safe, short-term emergency accommodation. Our refuge has seven units made up of five individual units containing a kitchen/living area, ensuite sleeping areas and two ensuite bedrooms. The refuge can cater for seven women and up to twenty-three children at any time.
In our work with children they are given the chance to articulate the way they feel about their experiences. We make sure to work with the parent and child as a unit.

Our Way of Work
With the help of the services above, and based on our principles of practice, we work together with women to assess their needs and then set a plan or goal to address them.
We have a childcare worker who works with children residing in the refuge or on a referral basis. Our childcare worker uses a programme to address the needs of children affected by domestic violence. We can also refer to a play therapist, who works with the children within the refuge if needed. We do this work in collaboration with the parent.
