We send a range of things to refuges and safe houses.
Refuges are shared spaces and so doing laundry for lots of families, cleaning a lot of bathrooms and toilets uses up valuable funds.
We have replaced past it kettles, ancient irons and other small appliances past their use by date. We also supply crockery and cutlery.
Nice new plates
Keeping the tea flowing
Babies need refuge too
Helping refuges scrub up
Safe phones or credit
Soft new towels
Sometimes babies turn up in refuges before Mum's can move into a more settled home. We have supplied cots, bedding and prams to help them out.
Perpetrators of domestic abuse often use phones to track and find victims of abuse and violence. We have supplied phones with credit to give to people at risk who need a safe phone.
And who doesn't love a soft new towel?
