How we work

At Ellestedet, we believe that violence is completely unacceptable and cannot be justified in any way. We believe that everyone has the right to a life without violence, which is why we work to make visible the underlying themes that cause men to be violent towards women and children.

Who are we?

  • Ellestedet is an innovative 20-bed shelter for women and children from all over the country, offering emergency protection for those who have experienced violence or threats 
  • We work in accordance with the Service Act § 109
  • We want to educate and de-taboo the existing types of violence 

Our core values

Our values are reflected in our work every day and are: 

  1. Collaboration
  2. Hospitality
  3. Perseverance

Our vision is that women and children who have stayed at Ellested Women's Crisis Center will live a life without violence in their intimate relationships. By creating a safe environment for the women and children and supporting them in focusing on their own worth and empowerment, we believe we are getting closer to achieving this vision.

We value close cooperation with relevant authorities

We want to work closely with the individual municipality to develop flexible solutions for the battered woman and her children, if any. The framework and content of the flexible solutions will be defined based on the woman's residence plan and optimally combined with the municipal action plan in cases where such a plan is available.


When a woman who has been subjected to violence is admitted to Ellested Women's Crisis Center, the woman's home municipality will be contacted as soon as possible and no later than three days after admission (cf. section 109(4) of the Social Services Act) with information that the woman and any children have moved in.


We will help with finding a new home, legal advice, financial advice, advice on physical and digital safety, help with leisure activities, etc. If the woman wants to move to a new municipality, we will help with job support, advice on health and new daycare facilities, and support in working with social authorities.

We value close collaboration with professionals

Ellested Women's Crisis Center emphasizes close collaboration with other professionals in order to ensure a holistic solution for the woman and children based on in-depth knowledge of people, violence and psychology. After the time at the crisis center, a new everyday life begins - an everyday life where the responsibility for safety, school and daycare, leisure life, relationships with e.g. job center, health care and social authorities may seem unmanageable. The woman can therefore draw on support in terms of counseling and if there is a need for an accompanist in important conversations.
Recognition is key for us
We strive to have a respectful and non-blaming approach to the women and children who have found their way to us, and we emphasize welcoming women and children in a warm, spacious and trustworthy atmosphere and in a welcoming physical environment. Everyone needs to feel cared for when they feel they deserve it the least.
We see women and children as experts in their own lives
The purpose of the stay with us is, among other things, to reduce feelings of guilt, shame and paralysis, which is why we work to clarify and support the knowledge that the women already possess.

Most importantly, everyone around the woman and child, social worker, educators, volunteers, teachers and other relevant people, participate in the same common whole and talk to each other to unite around the core task.

Vi er et midlertidigt hjem. Et kvindekrisecenter for kvinder og børn, der har oplevet vold.

VI HAR TELEFONEN ÅBENT DØGNET RUNDT.

Vi lytter til dig. Sammen finder vi ud af, om et ophold hos os er en god løsning for dig. Vi kan give dig råd og vejledning til, hvad du kan gøre i din situation.

Vi kan hjælpe dig med juridisk bistand, hjælpe dig med at afklare din beskæftigelse, karriere eller udfordringer på jobbet. Vi kan hjælpe dig med samværsordninger eller andet, der kan veje tungt på dine nære relationer.
I dag havde vi besøg af Lone Smidt (A), Vibeke Ejlertsen (A) og Poul Erik Knudsen (A) til vores reception den 13. juni. Vi fremhævede livet på Ellestedet og vigtigheden af vidensdeling for at hjælpe særligt udsatte. Sammen kan vi nå langt 💥Ellestedet er et trygt krisecenter, der hjælper kvinder og børn med at genopbygge deres liv. Vi skaber trygge rammer og basale livsbetingelser som nærvær og sund kost, så kvinderne kan blive ressource-stærke. På @Ellestedet arbejder vi for at genopbygge kvindernes identitet, give dem troen på sig selv tilbage, lære sig selv at kende og respektere egne grænser. Det er en ære og hjertesag for os at støtte kvinderne på denne rejse.Besøget gav os mulighed for at diskutere udfordringer med kommuner, familieretssystemet og psykiatrien. Vi har oplevet problemer som lækage af kvindernes anonymitet – hvad er meningen? Afvisninger fra psykiatrien trods løfter til kvinderne – hvor er støtten? Vanskeligheder med at få børn overflyttet til nye kommuner, selvom mor har fundet modet og styrken til at få et job. Disse udfordringer gør det svært for kvinderne at nå deres mål, og for @Ellestedet at støtte dem effektivt, men vi kæmper videre.For at skabe de bedste forudsætninger for kvindernes ønsker, håb og drømme har vi på Ellestedet: frisør for øget selvtillid, massør for tryghed, Nada for beroligelse, psykolog for klarhed, kok for sund kost, fitness for endorfiner, natur for ro og eksistentialisme, og traumebehandling for forløsning af traumer.Besøget var en respektfuld anerkendelse af vores arbejde og de løsninger, vi tilbyder for at støtte kvinderne i deres rejse mod et liv fyldt med drømme og ambitioner. Vi håber at have belyst nogle af de udfordringer, vi som samfund bør løse. Vi håber vores gæster fik noget at tænke over. Der var koncentration, smil, gode snakke og engagement, der næsten trak en lille tåre. Ægte og autentisk – sådan kommer man længst. Tak for en fin dag 🌸Følg os for mere indsigt i vores arbejde og kvinderne på Ellestedet! #Ellestedet #StærkeKvinder #Vidensdeling #Fællesskab #EllestedKvindekriseCenter
I et voldeligt forhold er det ikke kun de fysiske skader, der forårsager den mest langvarige smerte. Økonomisk vold er en skjult form for overgreb, der kan have dybtgående og ødelæggende konsekvenser for dem, der udsættes for det. Men hvad er økonomisk vold, hvordan manifesterer det sig, og hvordan kan Ellestedet hjælpe dig, hvis du er fanget i et mønster af økonomisk kontrol og manipulation?
