Please donate today and help us save lives and build safe new futures. 

Every single day Refuge works tirelessly to support thousands of women and children experiencing domestic violence and other forms of gender based violence. We cannot do this without your support.


£2 a month could pay for an emergency pack
Sometimes women need to escape in a hurry and arrive at our refuges with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. Your regular gift could pay for the emergency packs we provide.

£8 a month could help women enter the job market
Often women are prevented from working by their abusers, or they may have had to leave their job to escape violence and abuse. Your regular donation could help give women back their independence and support them to find work.

Support a Stay logo

For just 33p a day (£10 a month) you could ‘Support a Stay’ for a woman and her children in one of our refuges.

Your support could mean the end to months or years of domestic violence for a woman, or the end to a child witnessing the trauma of domestic abuse.

£10 could pay for a child’s school pack
A school uniform for their new school will help children to fit in and stop them feeling lonely. Your donation could help us to provide a school pack for these children.

£35 could pay for a children’s fun day
At our refuges we hold fun days of activities for children, helping them to play in a safe and happy environment. Your donation could give them a great day out and let them be children again.

£75 could pay for a local support group
We hold support sessions for women who are still living with domestic violence and want to find out their options. Drop-in sessions provide an important way to reach women in the community.

Support Refuge by making a donation


Our mission is to empower women and children to rebuild their lives, free from violence and fear. Gifts in wills play an important role in securing and improving specialist domestic and gender-based violence services for future survivors.

After taking care of your loved ones, a gift in your will to Refuge – even a small percentage – can help realise our vision of a future where domestic violence is not tolerated or ignored.
