Refuge supports 3,800 women and children on any given day through a range of services, including refuges, independent advocacy, community outreach and culturally specific services.
Working with families to effect change
Two women a week are killed by a current or former partner every week in England and Wales – leaving two families every week bereaved due to domestic violence. Refuge supports families who have lost a loved one to domestic violence
Refuge’s award winning campaigns aim to educate the general public and ultimately prevent domestic violence by ensuring that women have the information and support they need to plan a safe escape.
Refuge provides a voice for women and children experiencing domestic violence, and ensures that their needs are represented at the highest possible level.
Research and publications
Refuge produces research into the effects of domestic violence and the issues surrounding service provision.
