Refuge’s 40th birthday month launches

Refuge has come a long way since it opened the world’s first refuge in November 1971.

We’ve put together a birthday wish list of goals that will help us to maintain and improve our life-changing and life-saving services now and in the future. Find out more about Refuge’s 40th birthday and what you can do to support women and children escaping domestic violence here.
