We are the sixth largest accredited domestic abuse charity in England. We’ve been around for almost 40 years and in that time we’ve built up a real depth of knowledge. We currently have 85 employees and an annual turnover in the region of £2m.

Juno Women’s Aid is an ambitious and resourceful charity, passionate about helping women and their children move forward to live their lives free from abuse. In a year, we answer around 10,000 calls on our helpline, support over 6,000 women and 260 children.
