Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Clydebank Women's aid provides temporary accommodation and a safe place for women and their children to stay, where the women have suffered abuse (mental, physical or sexual) in their home or within a relationship with a partner or family. Support is available on a daily basis and an emergency on-call is available at evenings and weekends. Further support and information is provided through the Out Reach Service and Rolling Programme to women in the community.
