Why we need your help

When #StayHome isn't safe...

To #stayhome is not safe for women facing domestic violence. As women are now trapped with perpetrators, they are at higher risk of violence. To #stayhome means no income for women who face financial abuse, or find themselves with no safety net around them.

The situation is critical. In the last week, most of our refuge residents were let go from their jobs. They now have no income and are unable to meet even their most basic needs, like buying food, sanitary products, soap, nappies and milk.

We are using our Emergency Fund with 2 aims: to provide our residents with what they need to live dignified lives and crucially, to increase the hours of our online emergency advice line, giving women a lifeline when it is not safe for them to pick up the phone.

We desperately need to raise 5k to add to our Emergency Fund. This will enable us to continue supporting the 14 families in our refuges as well as the women out there who need our help.

Please donate today. With your support, we can ensure some of the most vulnerable families in our society have a fighting chance at normality. Thank you!
