Philanthropy

We are one of the UK’s leading domestic abuse charities. Our strategy, expertise and experience mean we can ensure domestic abuse stops and that families get the support they need to rebuild their lives. Philanthropic giving offers you a crucial role in helping us do this.

Why work with us?

1.    We are ambitious

Our work reaches over 60,000 victims at the highest risk of murder or serious harm annually, and nearly 80,000 children. But we are always striving to do more. We want to ensure every victim gets the early, consistent and tailored support needed to end domestic abuse.

2.     We work across the whole family

For every person being abused, there is someone else responsible for that abuse: the perpetrator. And all too often, children are in the home and living with the impact. That’s why we don’t just work with an individual – we work across the whole family to ensure victims, and their children, become safe and well.

3.    We are informed by evidence

We are informed by evidence of what really works to keep families safe. Our unparalleled data on families living with domestic abuse shapes all of our work – from the content of our training to our conversations with policymakers.

4.    We’re innovators

We test innovative projects and replicate effective approaches that make more people safe and well. We learn from local provision and respect local circumstances, but show how great new approaches can be replicated across the UK.

5.    We work in partnership and alongside survivors

We work across organisational and sector boundaries. Our work is informed by the lived experience and insight of survivors as we strive to amplify their voices in all we do.
