BWA’s staff and trustees are our most valuable resource. We have incredibly dedicated women working for us running our services in addition to our volunteer trustees who provide effective and robust governance as well as strategic support to our charity.

“I have been a BWA board member for over four years. It is a real privilege to be part of such a dynamic organisation, to shape its direction and provide support to the team, and perhaps most of all to be part of a movement that is giving voice to the experiences of women who experience domestic abuse here in the Scottish Borders. I really feel that I am able to make a difference.”

Eibhlin McHugh (Board Member)

“Working for BWA is a privilege as we are invited into women’s lives. Their journey with us enables them to become again the strong and fabulous women they once were, becoming empowered and in turn use this insight to help others who may be going through a similar experience. BWA is all about women lifting up women to own their own lives.”
