“Women’s Aid is a leading national organisation that has been working in Ireland to stop domestic violence against women and children since 1974.

We work to make women and children safe from domestic violence, offer support, provide hope to women affected by abuse and work for justice and social change. Over the course of almost 40 years the organisation has built up a huge body of experience and expertise on the issue, enabling us to best support women and children and share this knowledge with other agencies responding to women experiencing domestic violence.

Our Direct Services for women experiencing domestic violence underpin and inform all of our work to end domestic violence.”

A4 Sounds and it’s studio A4 Towers operates on tight budget, so we don’t have any spare cash to build the resources we need to carry out the work we would like to do.

If you can afford to help A4 Sounds pay some bills you can make a donation via PayPal.

Since opening our studio we have been supported by many people and companies donating their old equipment, furniture and materials to us.
