We help people from Ireland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man travel to England to access a safe and legal abortion
Abortion Support Network provides financial assistance and accommodation to women* travelling from the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. Funding is available on a case by case basis depending on financial need and availability of funding. Please contact us before booking travel as we can also advise on the least expensive clinics and methods of travel.
We also provide confidential, non-judgmental information to anyone who contacts us via phone or email who is seeking information about travelling to England* for an abortion, as well as information about reputable providers of early medical abortion pills by post. If you are considering ordering abortion pills online, please read this first.
Update 23 October. The UK government has announced its plan to provide free abortion services in England for those travelling from Northern Ireland. In addition to free abortion services at bpas, NUPAS and MSI clinics, there will also be provision of travel costs for those on low incomes (income of less than £15,276, or in receipt of income support/ income-based JSA, income-related ESA or Pension Guarantee Credit). If you are resident in Northern Ireland, you can call 0333 234 2184 for assistance. If you’re a supporter and wondering how this affects how ASN works, read more here.
