Day Services Coordinator
About Teach Tearmainn
Established in 1999, Teach Tearmainn is the only specialised dedicated service working to address the issue of domestic violence and abuse in County Kildare, building a significant body of experience and expertise surrounding these issues over the years. Teach Tearmainn’s services are free of charge, confidential and based on an empowerment model, where support and information are provided to empower women to make their own decisions for themselves and their children.
Teach Tearmainn’s refuge was opened in 2014 and since then the service has grown and developed. The Refuge service is a core element of the work of the organisation. The Refuge provides emergency crisis care accommodation to women and children who are fleeing their homes as a result of domestic violence and abuse. Teach Tearmainn’s Refuge also provides support to women via telephone, which is also operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
