For women and children. Against domestic violence.

We provide expert, specialist support to women & children fleeing domestic violence.

Refuge opened the world’s first refuge in West London in 1971. Since then we have grown to support over 4,500 women & children every day, experiencing domestic and sexual violence, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, stalking, trafficking, prostitution & so-called ‘honour’ based violence.

Refuge relies on supporters like you to provide its life-saving services.
