Sexual Violence


41% of UK girls aged 14-17 in an intimate relationship experienced some form of sexual violence from their partner.

41% of men aged 18–24 say a woman is totally or partly to blame for her sexual assault if she goes out late at night, wears a short skirt and gets drunk.

There’s so much you can do to help Refuge continue to support around 6,000 women, children and men each and every day, but particularly as today is International Human Right’s Day.

Celebrate 10th December by donating £10 to show your support of a woman’s basic human right to live in safety.
