Corporate support

Your company could help women and children to rebuild their lives after domestic violence.

Refuge receives vital support from a range of companies. This support helps to sustain our national network of services, and allows us to reach even more vulnerable women and children.

Could your company help us to do even more?

There are lots of ways companies can get involved, from putting a team together for the London Marathon to nominating Refuge as a Charity of the Year.

Charity of the Year

Does your company choose a Charity of the Year?  If so, please consider nominating Refuge.

One woman in four will experience domestic violence at some point in her lifetime.  This means that someone you know – a sister, daughter, friend or colleague – could be at real risk. We all have a part to play in ending domestic violence. By supporting Refuge you can do just that.

Our expert team will work with you to ensure that the experience is mutually rewarding. We can help employees with fundraising activities, media coverage and volunteering opportunities.

Our domestic violence projects are local and national, so the likelihood is that we run a service near you! We will ensure that you know exactly how you are making a difference to the women and children we support.

Call us on 0207 395 7771 to discuss any ideas or activities you have in mind.

Other ways to get involved at work:

  • Run for Refuge – by yourself or as part of a team at work. We can secure you guaranteed places in a number of high profile running events – click here to find out more
  • Undertake a challenge for Refuge – we can help organise a team-building activity such as a group skydive, white water rafting adventure or outward bound weekend
  • Organise an event – hold a dress down day, lunchtime quiz, cake sale, raffle or perhaps a sweepstake on a sporting event. All are great ways to get colleagues involved, raise awareness of Refuge and raise funds
  • Matched giving – find out if your company would consider matching what you or your team raise, doubling your fundraising total
  • Payroll giving- the most tax effective way to give – direct from your pay. If your workplace does not have a scheme in place, contact us for information on how to get one started or download our payroll giving form
