CASWA is a specialised organisation in Caithness and Sutherland for women, children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse. We have been delivering a support and information service since 2005 and are registered in Scotland as a charity and a company limited by guarantee.
CASWA operates an outreach service which is delivered by our domestic abuse specialists across Caithness and Sutherland through our Women’s Service and Children & Young People’s Service. In addition, we recognise our role in raising awareness and providing education about domestic abuse.
For more information of the work that we do, please see our website (particularly the “Services” section). We update our blog on our website as well as our social media platforms on a regular basis.
CASWA can be contacted in various ways – by telephone, email, through the “contact us” button on our website or by completing and sending a self-referral form (which can be found on the services pages of our website).
