Support us

Direct Donations

We rely on donations to help provide our services on a yearly basis to women and their children who contact us. Making a donation could help make a difference to the women and children whom we support.

£5 could help purchase materials for a child to take part in a children's group activity like baking or an arts and crafts project to gain confidence and encourage involvement with others.

£10 could help provide an emergency pack for a woman fleeing domestic abuse. In many cases, women turn up at DWA with only the clothes on her back. This could help to provide essential items.

Every donation, regardless of the amount, will help make a difference to the women, children and young people who access our support and services.

Thanks to everyone who has supported us in the past!


Donate today and help us to continue providing the support and services needed to change and save women and children's lives affected by domestic abuse.
