Refuge:Cuan Saor Women's Refuge We provide accommodation for women who have to leave their homes due to a domestic violence incident. This is short term crisis accommodation which is staffed on a 24 hour basis and is safe and secure with high levels of support. We currently have three/four self-contained units with a large walled garden for children to play in.
