Information For Students

Thank you for your interest in Refuge. Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to personally deal with enquiries from students, participate in student projects, complete questionnaires or provide individual interviews with staff and case studies. We are a very small team with limited resources and need to prioritise activities that will generate high profile exposure for us and raise money to support our work. Please make full use of the information provided on this website. It should answer any questions you have and enable you to find everything you need.


Please note that Refuge does not have a budget for advertising so does not accept calls offering paid for advertising space. To promote our work, we rely entirely upon donated space for our advertising campaigns and are rarely able to participate in low cost or reduced fee promotional opportunities. If you would like to donate advertising space to Refuge, please contact
