Nov 2017 - Omagh Women’s Aid Information event with Caledon Women’s Institute

Staff of Omagh Women’s Aid recently addressed Caledon Women’s Institute, giving them some information on the services offered by Women’s Aid, exploring what is domestic abuse, myths around the topic and some warning signs of an abusive relationship.

The evening was enjoyed by all. The group also kindly donated beautifully wrapped Christmas gifts for the women using our services. The event closed with a delicious supper.

Thanks to all of the women who were there on the night, including our very own local woman, Elaine Agnew.
