EVA Women’s Aid began in 1987, meaning we have over thirty years’ experience of delivering first-class specialist services to victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence in Redcar & Cleveland. We are the only organisation in the area providing a full ‘wraparound’ service to victims, from accommodation, to individual support, Programmes, Training and Counselling.
Although we have a long history, EVA is very different from when we began in the 80s, and we have plans to expand our services, grow our Staff Team numbers and deliver even more services to victims. But domestic abuse and sexual violence remain as serious, traumatic and life-changing issues and we work hard to support victims with the ‘cope and recovery’ process.
Abuse is a gendered issue, for many reasons, and part of EVA’s work is to challenge stereotypes, campaign against discrimination and to give victims a voice. We do this because ……….Abuse. Has. To. Stop.
