Our Trips Programme For Women's Refuges


Apples & Pears gives children under 12 and their families the opportunity to discover inspiring educational, social and cultural activities through awarding grants to organisations who can run or host our group trips programme.

Women's Refuges

If you've made it this far, you're potentially interested in supporting our work with women's refuges. A new venture for us! Following a successful pilot with Reigate & Banstead Women’s Aid in early 2018, we’ll be expanding our women’s refuge project so we can fund at least one trip a quarter at 5 different refuges.

  • As always, 100% of raised funds go to projects and not internal operational costs (these are covered privately). 

  • Our grants fund group trips for women and their children at our refuge partners (provision is also made for single women staying at the refuge should they wish to join). 

  • Refuge staff run the trips and along with being an enjoyable day out, the trips are also used to introduce both what is likely to be a new area and relevant local services.

  • Our grants cover transport costs, entry fees and learning materials that support the trips (e.g. activity workbooks, museum headsets). 

We'll be looking to award around £5,000 in grants to women's refuges in 2018/2019 and would love you support to help us achieve this goal!
