Support a local initiative to tackle violence against women

Find out about your local women's organisation and multi agency partnership and see what you can do to help. As services offer accommodation and support to women who have undergone serious violence, many are women-only environments so it is best to email or call rather than knocking on the door.

Ask whether they would like any support – depending on local needs, you could volunteer your time and skills, make a donation, or hold a fund-raising event.

  • Find your local Women's Aid Group
  • Call the national offices of some of the organisations listed in our links page and ask whether there are local services you could support.
