Amanda’s confidence was destroyed by an abusive partner, but we were able to help her rebuild and start again with her children. Will you help more women like Amanda escape domestic abuse by donating to our spring appeal today?

Domestic Abuse Bill

Following the closing of the Domestic Abuse Bill consultation on 31 May 2018, Refuge believes that no one should be subjected to abuse or violence and appropriate support and protection should be available to all. Read more on our response to the Bill proposals.

In my opinion a REFUGE from abuse should not have to rely upon grants & donations to survive

It should not have to turn anyone away including the ill & dependent

It should be able to house children & pets

Time to see it as a National EMERGENCY service paid for out of taxation
