An estimated 1 in 4 women will experience some form of domestic abuse over their lifetime and 20% of children in the UK have lived with an adult perpetrating domestic violence. Your company could help women and children rebuild their lives after domestic violence.
Nottingham Central Women’s Aid is proud to work in partnership with a number of companies from different sectors. Together with our partners we can save and change lives by raising awareness of domestic violence amongst new audiences, as well as raising essential funds to support our services.
Working with us
From office fundraising to taking on a team-building challenge event, we can support you with a variety of different activities to engage your staff in a good cause.
- Fundraising. We can support your fundraising activities, or help you plan a calendar of events for your staff to get involved with
- Volunteering. We are able to offer some employee volunteering opportunities which provide support to the women and children in our services, including help running our charity events, or even help with painting and decorating!
- Gifts in kind and pro bono support. We are always grateful to receive gifts in kind. Staff collections of new/unused items that women and children in our refuges need can be a great way for everyone to get involved and really make a difference. For women arriving in our refuges with very little, toiletries and other basic items are really important.

We would like to thank the following organisations who have supported us to provide our services:
Tara’s Angels is a non-profit organisation set up in memory of
Tara Newbold, a mother of three who sadly lost her life in 2016,
after being a victim of domestic violence. Tara’s family and friends
decided to raise money for vulnerable women and children across
the county in refuges, helping to support those that have
experienced domestic abuse.
As well as a range of donations and funding for personal alarms for
the women in our refuge, Tara’s Angels are sponsoring a number of
yoga/ mindfulness sessions for the women and children living at
Esendex are a recent sponsor, but have already provided this new website. Beyond this, they have also raised funds across the company, volunteered to decorate the house of a refuge leaver and provided donations of brand new mattresses, an arcade machine, clothing, Christmas chocolates and other raffle prizes.
Nottingham Soroptimists International
Nottingham Soroptimists International have donated significant funds to replace the flooring in our outside play area, replace our back gate and decorate many internal areas. They are a long-term supporter of our refuge as they also provide the ‘welcome packs’ for women at a time when they feel most vulnerable.
BBC Children in Need
BBC Children In Need fund our Children’s Support Worker who is dedicated to providing activities and support for the children accessing our services.
The National Lottery Community Fund
Awards for all have supported us with new skills and confidence building for the women and children who have to escape to safety.
Capital one volunteers and the women’s network have supported us with decorating inside the refuge and with providing food, clothes, towels and toiletries for families in crisis entering refuge.
We are especially thankful to Nicola who did a skydive for us and raised a huge amount of money which will now pay for the refuge to have a much needed newly fitted kitchen.
