Emergency appeal: Will you take care of us this Christmas?

will you take care of us this christmas?
We’ve all learnt a thing or two about taking care of each other this year. This Christmas, will you take care of those in the refuge by buying a gift?

We’ve all learnt a thing or two about taking care of each other this year.

We looked after our shielding elderly relatives by picking up their medication.
We pitched in to help our self-isolating neighbours when they needed groceries collecting.
We protected each other by wearing face masks.

Will you do something to take care of those in the refuge this Christmas?

We care for women and children fleeing domestic abuse and are the only refuge of this type left in Devon. We receive no dedicated public funding so, to look after those who have fled their homes at Christmas, we need your help.

Here’s how you can help:

The gift of dignitydonate £5
Give the gift of toiletries and food for those arriving at the refuge with nothing.

The gift of childhooddonate £10
Give the gift of toys, educational resources and school uniform for children at the refuge.

The gift of sisterhooddonate £20
Give the gift of sanitary products, and also clothes for a woman to attend a job interview, so she can move forward.

The gift of wellbeingdonate £30
Give the gift of books, therapy and resources to support the mental health of those affected by abuse.

The gift of supportdonate £40
Give the gift of funds to provide staff for our live text talk service.

The gift of a better futuredonate £70
Give the gift of coaching and counselling to empower someone to change the course of their life (and their children’s), free from abuse.

Domestic abuse is a tough topic to talk (or even think) about – we know that.

But it isn’t just a “big issue”. It’s about real families – women and children – in our community who need your help.

Please donate now via our JustGiving page – your gift will change lives. Thank you.

Do you run a business? Would you make us your charity of the year for 2022 and be instrumental in helping us take care of the 250+ residents we house at the refuge across the year?
