Make a bequest in your will

Even small bequests are of enormous value to Women’s Refuge and they are very gratefully received. To remember us you will need to write a will, or if you already have one you need to amend it. Please consult your solicitor or whoever holds your will. For more information, please email us.

Organise a fundraiser

Get involved, get creative and get planning your own event that raises both money and awareness about domestic violence and our services. We would love you to stage an event in your community, or with your family and friends – they’re fun, rewarding and a great way to meet new people.

Ideas for a fundraising event include organising a sausage sizzle at your local shopping mall; having a garage sale; throwing a progressive dinner party with your friends or workmates, with each person hosting a different course at their house; or getting sponsored in an event like a fun-run, walk or a triathalon. Our national annual appeal is held every July so holding an event in this month would be very helpful too.

Promote your event on Facebook or Fundraise Online as an easy way for your friends, family and workmates to sponsor you. We’d love to hear about your efforts – please email us. Besides, we may even be able to assist!

Donate good-quality items

Our local refuges are always looking for furniture, clothing, bedding, household items and children’s books in good condition to make our safe houses comfortable and homely for women and children escaping domestic violence. If you have goods to donate, please contact your local refuge and find out whether they will be of use. Thank you!
