Fiona Dwyer, Chief Executive

"I’m delighted to be leading an organisation of such incredibly dedicated staff, working together to support the women, young people and men who engage in our services. Solace speaks to my passions of supporting women’s rights, ending VAWG and empowering women and young people survivors of abuse."
