Our Background

In 1995 a National survey “making the Links” (Women’s Aid) indicated there was a widespread incidence of violence against women and in 1996 the government set up the task force on violence against women chaired by the then minister of state Eithne Fitzgerald T.D.

One of the recommendations was an appropriate One Stop Centre that could offer a safe environment to provide information and advice on the options and services available to women and children in their area.

In response to the report in July 2000 the doors of the OSS opened its doors to the public for the first time. It was supported by the Cork Rape Crisis Centre
In 2006 the OSS became a stand alone company.
