People who flee domestic abuse and come to our refuges may have had to leave everything behind. Sometimes they have only the clothes they have arrived in. Children find themselves in an unfamiliar new ‘home’ without their beloved favourite toy to give them continuity and comfort. Often, children in our refuges need to enrol in new schools where they can be safe, and they need new uniforms and supplies.
People may come to live in our supported accommodation with few household possessions, or no food to get them through their first few days as they settle in.
Your donations help us provide these essential extras for people who are vulnerable and in crisis. We are very grateful for any money you can give, however small.
