Help open the door to safety this winter

Help protect women and children this winter.

You can protect women and children escaping abuse by contributing to our open door appeal. We accept referrals 24 hours a day and families will be brought to a place of safety within hours of calling us. This winter we are raising funds to expand our services so that more women and children can escape domestic abuse and access safety. 

Our team of specialist domestic abuse workers provide emotional and practical support to the whole family. The children’s support worker ensures that children have activities, pyjamas and toys helping them through the first few days and weeks of arriving and making sure that the room they share with their mum is safe and comfortable with all the essential items and more. Central Women’s Aid support  provides space for recovery and healing following abuse and continues for many months and sometimes even years until the family have resettled in their forever home.

You can donate quickly and easily here and find out more about fundraising for our charity

Other ways to support our charity work.

We run community programmes that are accessible to women aged 16+. During the programmes women are given resources to help them understand their experiences and work towards recovery following being subjected domestic abuse. Spread the word to anyone who might be interested in attending or refer quickly and easily here.
