A mother and her child play in a refuge.

What donors say

  Supporting Refuge gives us an opportunity to be as effective as we can be in reaching out to survivors of domestic violence.  Their expertise, reach, innovation and efficiency means we can extend our compassion in multiple intelligent ways. Refuge’s figures on social return have impressed us enormously and we see them as not only a warm and wonderful organisation, but a significant influence on social policy in the UK.

  Refuge is a charity very close to my heart. As a child I witnessed repeated violence against my mother – but there was nowhere to go for help. The truth is, domestic violence is protected by silence. More women and children just like my mother and me, will continue to experience abuse unless we all speak out against it.
