Emergency funding appeal

Domestic abuse has increased during the coronavirus pandemic, which means more demand than ever for our specialist mental health services.

We were working at full capacity before the lockdown and anticipate a 30% increase in women accessing our services once the restrictions ease.

However, we are facing a funding shortfall. We need your help to ensure that women can get the free, and often life-saving support they need.


We empower women to rebuild their lives after domestic abuse

1 in 4 UK women will experience some form of domestic abuse and it’s the leading cause of depression among UK women. Yet we are one of the few organisations addressing the link between domestic abuse and women’s mental health.

Since 1996, we have supported thousands of women from across London, through our free counselling; group therapy; and self-development workshops.

I need help

Our professional counselling, support groups and workshops have all been designed to give you the support you need to get back to being you. Whether you feel isolated; depressed; lack self-confidence; have low self-esteem or low motivation – we’re here to listen, without judgement, and to help you recover.

I need information

Find out about the different types of domestic abuse; how to spot the symptoms of abuse; what to do if you’re worried about someone in an abusive relationship; and facts and figures on the impact of domestic abuse.

Support our work

It’s vital that women who have been abused have access to mental health support for their emotional wellbeing. We provide our services for free – and last year alone we helped over a thousand women. As a UK registered charity, 100% of our funding comes from donations and grants. Find out how you can donate and the many other ways you can support us.

Together, we can help even more women in their recovery from abuse.
