Kvinnohuset Kassandra

A center for women who have experienced violence in a close relationship.


Have you been exposed to threats, violence or other abuse by your partner, former partner or someone else in your near family? If so, you have been subjected to a crime and are entitled to support and protection.

Intimate partner violence is common and can happen to anyone. The violence can include psychological, physical, sexual and controlling behaviors by an intimate partner.

At Kvinnohuset Kassandra we have social workers with many years of experience working with women who have experience of violence in a close relationship. The center has been active since 1996 and is politically and religiously unbound.


We offer support to:

  • Women who have experienced violence in a close relationship.
  • Women subjected to rape
  • Friends and families
  • Professionals



If you have questions about abuse, or want to help someone you know, we have the knowledge to help you. Kvinnohuset can give you support and advice by phone or provide counselling in person. You can remain anonymous if you want.

If you need a women shelter, contact the social services in the area or municipality where you live. Your children are also entitled support. During evenings or weekends, you can contact socialjouren in Gothenburg on number: 031-365 87 00. In an emergency, always call police at 112.
