Who We Are

"Intimate partner violence accounts for 15% of all violent crime"

Mission & Vision

The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre is a charitable organization that provides support to all victims of domestic violence via services and programmes focusing on domestic and sexual abuse through the provision of:

  • Safe, temporary shelter for women and their children
  • 24/7 Crisis Line available to all persons in the community
  • Aftercare assistance for the former shelter clients
  • Community education
  • At-risk children and youth support
  • Assistance to all victims of domestic violence

Our vision is to close our doors forever because our services are no longer needed, and to create a safe society where all individuals are equally valued and respected.

Our Beginnings

The Cayman Islands Crisis Centre was established in 2003 as the country’s first safe shelter for female victims of domestic violence and their children. Many members of the community deserve thanks for their vision and hard work, including Estella Scott-Roberts who established CICC, Cayman Islands Government and the members of the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Grand Cayman, who were instrumental in getting the CICC launched.

Mr. Len Layman also deserves special thanks as he chaired the Board of the CICC from its inception until 2015, working to fulfill his vision of a Cayman without violence towards women.

Each donation helps to improve someone’s life
