Will you help more women like Amanda escape domestic abuse by giving a gift today?

It’s difficult to put into words how powerful and destructive the effects of abuse can be. Women who have been attacked with hammers, shot with air rifles or raped by men who want to control every aspect of their lives.

Two women are killed by a current or former partner every week in England and Wales – whilst a further three women will take their own lives. At Refuge, we can help women to escape abuse, and save their lives, but we need your help.

Please give a gift today and help a woman like Amanda* to escape domestic abuse.

Amanda’s story is typical of the women who come to Refuge. Her confidence was destroyed by an abusive partner but we were able to help her rebuild and start again with her children.

We help over 6,000 women and children on any given day. We provide emergency accommodation in refuges and outreach services to support women to escape abuse and rebuild every aspect of their lives. We also provide support workers to help children who experience domestic violence, allowing them to enjoy the childhood they deserve, without living in fear.

We do all this and more with your generous support.

Please give a gift today. Thank you.
