We have humble beginnings, starting life in the 1970s in a two bedroomed flat in York as York Women’s Aid. Since then we have grown to be the largest specialist charity in the North.
We support thousands of people each year and those we support tell us that our services are life changing and sometimes life-saving.
IDAS offers a range of free and confidential services to help people cope with, and recover from, the traumatic effects of domestic abuse and sexual violence.
