Ways to Help Us


You are the reason we can continue supporting women and children who are experiencing or have experienced or witnessed domestic abuse.

That’s around


Donated per Day

We are fortunate to receive grants from statutory local government, foundations and trusts. However, as an independent refuge we must also secure around £70,000 each and every year to provide a full range of services.

If you are thinking of holding a fund-raising event to support the work of the Refuge please contact us as we would be pleased to help you.


Due to the risks posed by COVID-19 we are currently unable to accept donations of physical items (clothes, toys, etc.). However we greatly appreciate donations of money or supermarket vouchers so we can keep supporting women and children to meet their needs.
