Domestic Abuse Awareness and Recovery

Welcome to WE:ARE Women’s Empowerment And Recovery Educators, we deliver a range of awareness, empowerment and parenting programmes for women aged 16+ affected by domestic abuse alongside a range of workshops and activities.

For legal advice please contact NCDV, FLOWS or Support Through Court. For any other support please see here.

Please note that all our current Birmingham programmes are full.

We have received some funding from the Heart of England Community Foundation to deliver programmes for women who live in Solihull, Shirley, Chelmsley Wood and Kingshurst please email for more details.

If you are an agency who would like to work with us please email Jacky to discuss commissioning opportunities.

If you have a child who is 0 to 5 years old Birmingham Forward Steps have funded Children Centre's to deliver the Freedom Programme. Visit their website and insert your postcode to find your local Children's Centre.

Visit the main Freedom Programme website to find a programme on Zoom.

Due to COVID-19 our base is temporary closed but we have adapted our way of working and are now delivering programmes remotely through Zoom.

Domestic Abuse Awareness and Empowerment Programmes

We deliver a pathway of domestic abuse programmes that provide the knowledge women need to process, heal and move forward. These are all run in groups as it enables camaraderie and shows that you are not alone on your journey. Abuse is isolating, and as humans we need connection and relationships to heal.

The Freedom Programme is an 11-week course for women aged 16+ who want to learn more about the reality of domestic abuse.

Own my life course for survivors of domestic abuse

Own My Life is a 12-week course that supports women in regaining ownership of their lives after domestic abuse.


Healing Together focuses on how our brains and bodies work together to make us feel safe and calm.

WE:ARE has made a massive difference as I feel connected with other women survivors. It gives me hope for a better future ahead.
