ADAPT Domestic Abuse Services is a Limerick-based voluntary organisation set up in 1974. It promotes the right of women and their children to life free form violence and provides supports for women survivors of domestic abuse and their children. It does this by:

  • Providing quality services for women survivors and their children
  • Promoting awareness of domestic abuse and its impact on women and children
  • Lobbying for change to bring about the elimination of violence against women

In addition to the provision of direct services, ADAPT seeks to challenge domestic abuse and lobby for change to eliminate violence against women by engaging in the following activities:

  • Delivery of awareness training for community, statutory and voluntary agencies. Workshops are tailored to meet the needs of individuals/organisations.
  • Delivery of prevention education programmes for young people and those working with them. These focus on the development of healthy relationships and recognising when relationships are unhealthy and potentially unsafe.
  • Development of creative materials to raise awareness of domestic abuse and production of resource material such as 'Lean on Me' information guide for women survivors.
  • Participation in relevant regional and national policy-making fora including the Regional Advisory Committee on Violence against Women.
  • Participation in relevant research and supporting those using the services to participate and have their voices heard through such research.
