About the High Risk Support Project

The High Risk Support Project (HRSP) provides a multiagency response to women at high risk of ongoing abuse and homicide from their ex-partners. This unique and innovative project is embedded in Women’s Aid One to One Support Services. The HRSP has developed since its initiation in 2013 to operate in 2024 across the Greater Dublin area (Garda region D.M.R.) and the ten counties of the Eastern Region, with well-established practices and procedures among key partners.

Women’s Aid partners with An Garda Síochána, Vodafone Foundation, and local domestic abuse services to deliver a coordinated rapid response system for women and families.

The High Risk Support Project supports and empowers women to feel safer and to begin rebuilding their lives free of constant fear. Referrals of appropriate candidates for participation in the HRSP are received from the Gardaí or other domestic abuse services with whom Women’s Aid has an established Memorandum of Understanding for this purpose.

Women’s Aid is generously funded by the Department of Justice to Co-ordinate this unique project.
