Welcome to the website of Wimlah Women’s and Children’s Refuge, specialist domestic violence service.

Wimlah welcomes any woman, with or without children, regardless of her ethnicity, age, sexuality or gender that identifies she is currently escaping or has ever been at risk due to domestic and family violence.

Wimlah recognises that domestic violence takes many forms of abuse including emotional and psychological, social, verbal, spiritual, sexual, and financial; it is not just physical abuse.

This website contains information about domestic violence, its effects and the services that are available in the Blue Mountains (NSW), to help someone who is or has experienced it.

You will also find a downloadable safety planning template as well as resources and articles to help better understand the impacts and effects of domestic and family violence.
