My Sisters Place is an independent specialist ‘One Stop Shop’ for women aged 16 or over and have experienced or are experiencing domestic violence. Established in 2002 we are committed to working in partnership to tackle domestic violence.
Our approach is rooted in an understanding of the gendered nature ofviolence against women and girls, and recognises the way intersecting factors such as age, ethnicity, sexuality and disability can affect women’sexperiences and the journey through recovery.
