Celebrity Supporters and Champions

Refuge is fortunate to be supported by a number of celebrity supporters and champions, all of whom are dedicated to campaigning against domestic violence and other forms of violence against women and girls.

“My work with Refuge came about because I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has the right to live free from violence and fear. Living in safety – especially in your own home – is a basic human right.”

Helena Bonham Carter

“Thousands of women and children are frightened to be at home, the one place where they should feel safe. I can’t imagine what that would feel like. Domestic violence won’t stop unless we all speak out against it. We can’t let it go on all around us and not do anything about it. This is a problem that kills people.”

Lauren Laverne

“It’s shocking to think that one quarter of all the women I know could experience domestic violence at some point in their lives – and that some of them could be going through it right now. I’m really proud to be a champion for Refuge – it’s a charity that saves and changes the lives of women and children.”

“Everyone has a right to live a life which is free from violence and over the years I have realised that silence is a victim’s biggest enemy. I want to give other women enough courage to pick up the phone and ask for help… because once a victim starts talking to Refuge they are on the road to being a survivor.”
