CEA is an inclusive service committed to ending all forms of abuse. We provide support and advice to anyone regardless of age, beliefs, ethnicity, faith, gender, sexual orientation and race.

We offer individual support as well as group work. We also provide support networks, creative and expressive arts workshops, parenting workshops and training for other organisations.

In addition, we offer support for children and young people who’ve been affected by abuse, through professionally trained support workers.

Our confidential service includes keeping people safe, helping them to make decisions and supporting them with accommodation, legal advice and access to benefits. All our staff are trained to work in these areas. We are accredited by The Care Inspectorate.

People may self-refer but equally we accept referrals from all other agencies including the Police, Housing, Health, Social Work services and voluntary organisations.


We were established in 1976 as Falkirk and District Women’s Aid, part of the Scottish Women’s Aid network together with Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee. In the last forty years our organisation has grown from strength to strength responding to changing social, political and economic climates and adapting our services to reflect changing needs.
