Get involved

We are looking for people who have been involved in Women’s Aid at different times in its history, and from all parts of Scotland, to be interviewed by volunteers who will record these unique stories.

Interviewees might include people who set up the first refuges, received support from a local group, or worked for the organisation and campaigned for Women’s Aid, as well as politicians, journalists and academics who have worked closely with the charity.

If you are interested in getting involved in this project please contact Sarah Browne on
