Cheshire Without Abuse

We are My CWA, formerly known as Cheshire Without Abuse. We’re a Cheshire-based charity supporting families affected by domestic abuse.

For more than 40 years, we’ve been working mainly with families in Cheshire East.

We cover Poynton and Wilmslow in the North, Macclesfield and Congleton in the centre and Crewe and Nantwich in the South – as well as their surrounding villages. We offer a whole family service.

Who we help

Domestic abuse can affect women and men of all ages and economic backgrounds. It can affect people from different cultures and traditions. And it can happen in any type of relationship – gay, straight, married or not, with or without children.

It can also affect wider families and friends. Our whole family service is designed to help everyone affected by domestic abuse.

How we help

We’re trained to recognise the signs and symptoms of domestic abuse. When you contact us, we’ll assess the needs of your family members and help you respond to practical issues involving things like housing, legal aid and finances.

We can provide temporary, safe crisis accommodation for those in immediate danger who need to urgently escape from domestic abuse.

We run the Lily Jones Support Centre, where families can access drop-in advice, legal clinics and a range of support groups and recovery programmes.

We also offer counselling and specialist children’s support programmes. Visit our work to find out more about the services we offer.
