Cuanlee hopes for a positive future for all, a future beyond abuse.Cuanlee hopes for a future where everyone feels safe in their relationship and feels safe in their home. Cuanlee hopes for an Ireland (world?) where the social structures that facilitate oppression, dominance and harm to others, no longer exist. We aspire to improve the everyday life of all individuals who come into contact with our service. We hope to facilitate meaningful change and to help generate the necessary momentum to actualise that change. In striving towards such goals, we recognise the striking courage and resilience that women have demonstrated in the face of immense difficulty. Cuanlee hopes to work in conjunction with women so that all women who utilise our service can come to be familiar with their own personal strengths and become arbiters of their own futures.



Our mission is to ensure that women and children experiencing domestic abuse receive the support and guidance they need to empower them. Unlocking inner-strength enables women to detach from previous cycles of abuse. Our services reflect this as they are client-centred, needs led and evidence based. The safety, welfare and protection of all our clients, both women and children, are central to the services we provide.

We work collaboratively with the community to raise awareness of the challenges and complexities of domestic abuse, while also advocating for the rights of women and children.
