lockdown appeal

Will you offer a brave woman a gateway to freedom?

Covid-19 has made the world a very small and dangerous place for women living with domestic violence. It is even harder to escape the terror hidden behind the four walls of their homes; to reach out, to talk – to ask for help.

That’s why we need your help so urgently today. Because there is a way out. A route to freedom.

Experience tells us, that at some stage, a woman in danger will finally have access to a phone or she will find a safe moment to secretly reach out. And it’s absolutely critical that we are there at that pivotal instant.

Please will you help Women’s Aid to be there by making a life-saving gift today?

Abusers are using the pandemic restrictions as another weapon against their wives, girlfriends and children – to further isolate them from any outside contacts or supports they may have. Women like Ruth…

“I think if an abuser was to design their perfect circumstance where they could freely carry out their terror, they would come up with Covid-19. You’re told to stay at home. Don’t mix households. Don’t have family visiting. Stay in your bubble. Well my bubble is a bubble of horror, not safety.”

With your powerful gift today, Women’s Aid will make sure that day or night – 7 days a week – we will be ready to help women like Ruth in their darkest hour. To help them find freedom. And independence.

Please will you help today by making an urgent life-saving gift?

Thank you so much.
