New CEO appointed at Fermanagh Women’s Aid

THE new interim Chief Executive Office of Fermanagh Women’s Aid has said she feels “deeply privilege” to take on the position in the organisation which provides life-saving support to local females.

Kerrie Flood joined Fermanagh Women’s Aid in 2011. After working in the Darling Street organisation for 13 years, she’s now been tasked with leading the non-profit support group in a very difficult time.

“I feel deeply privileged to have been able to move into the role of Interim CEO,” she told the Herald.


“I have always been very proud to be part of an organisation with such a clear feminist vision and such a rich history. I have benefited hugely from expertise from formidable women across many years.”

Fermanagh Women’s Aid is a non-profit organisation which relies on financial support from the local community in order to maintain its services.

Despite many families struggling from the cost of living crisis, following on from the Covid-19 pandemic, Fermanagh Women’s Aid still receives a lot of support from the local public.

“At a challenging time, each donation ensures that we can build on our solid foundation to be able to continue to support women and children,” said Ms Flood.

“The reality is that without the support of our community, we simply would not be here.”

Although the PSNI reports a decrease in domestic violence cases, there was still a 32,763 reported domestic abuse incidents across the North in the year up until March 31.

The new CEO of Fermanagh Women’s Aid has said that the Darling Street-based organisation will remain committed to raising awareness about domestic violence in the local community.


“It is very clear by the strength of our community support, that Fermanagh will not tolerate domestic and sexual violence. In the next 12 months, I hope to harness that support whenever possible,” said Ms Flood.
