about the refuge
At Selah we aim to provide a safe environment where women and their children can live without fear of abuse. At Selah we will accept referrals from any agency dealing with women aged 18 and above, with or without families, who meet our referral criteria. A self-referral can also be made by calling our emergency helpline on 02893363188.
When accepted for admittance to our refuge the resident is offered a place to call home giving you time and opportunity to receive the help and support you need in a time of crisis. Our apartments are fully furnished and although this is temporary accommodation, we encourage our residents to take time to rest while they recover and rebuild their lives without fear of abuse.
‘Selah’ is a Hebrew word that is used in the old testament of the bible to describe a pause in the Psalms. There is an invitation to all our residents to pause and think in a place of safety.
