Women’s Aid groups are currently struggling to sustain core services to women and children. Your donation can help provide much needed support to women and children experiencing domestic violence in your area.

If you wish to donate to or raise funds for your local group, please contact them directly. Staff will be more than happy to talk through options and current areas of need.

Find a Women’s Aid group in your area.

There are many ways you can support our local groups.

  • school support
  • donate gifts
  • legacy support
  • organise an event
  • support our emergency fund

School support

If your school would like to help us sustain the vital work that we do, here are some ideas that can be used to raise valuable funds:

  • non uniform day
  • school disco
  • sponsored walk
  • ‘crazy hair’ day
  • ‘fantastic hats’ day
  • school concert
  • talent competition, or
  • school fair

Please contact your local group who will work collaboratively to support this process from start to finish.

Donate gifts

Women’s Aid welcomes donations of gifts at all time of the year. You can donate gifts directly to your local Women’s Aid group.

Gifts of toys and presents are especially appreciated by our local Women’s Aid group sat Christmas time and can help ensure Christmas is a magical time for children and young people who will be spending it in refuge.

Local Women’s Aid groups also appreciate donations of quality, clean clothing including local school uniforms, nearly new toys and baby equipment that is in good working order such as prams etc. Contact your local group to discuss this prior to donating and a member of staff can make the necessary arrangements.

Legacy support

This is one of the most valuable ways you can contribute to our vital work. Writing a will is an important decision to make. It can be one of the most important steps in taking care of your family’s welfare. It can also provide you with an opportunity to consider leaving a donation to support the work of your chosen charity and leave a lasting impact.

If you choose to leave a donation to Women’s Aid, your gift can help change the lives of the many women and children we help each year in our work.Donations left in a will to charity are free from inheritance tax. Please contact a solicitor for advice. If you have already made a will, you can add to or change it at any time.

Organise an event

We are always interested to hear your ideas for events which can generate much needed funds for our work. Here are some ideas:

  • fun run or marathon
  • pub quiz
  • car boot sale
  • cookery event
  • sponsored cycle, or
  • coffee morning

Please contact your local Women’s Aid group to discuss your idea so staff can support you and work together to see it through to completion.
