Leeway Crowdfunding Appeal
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have had to cancel our scheduled fundraising events and we are also unable to accept the donation of items. The money raised from our fundraising activities is vital to enhance and sustain some of the specialist services that we provide for people experiencing domestic abuse.
Home is often not a very safe place for those experiencing domestic abuse and this period of isolation has already contributed to a 25% increase in national referrals. We have already seen the demand for our telephone advice and support services double compared to last week and we predict that this will continue in the coming months through this period of lockdown and uncertainty.
We have launched this crowdfunding appeal to help us to continue providing the best possible support for those experiencing domestic abuse, as well as enable us to meet the expected increased demand for our services.
Every donation really does help, no matter how small.
Here is a breakdown of how your donations will help to support the work that we do:
£10 – Will provide an activity pack and a toy for a child coming in to one of our refuges
£20 – Will provide an essential starter pack for families in refuge, such as essential food and toiletries
£100 – Will enable us to operate our telephone advice and support helpline for 2 hours providing vital support
£400 - will provide a family in refuge with a much needed tablet and WIFI internet access, so that they can safely and securely access home schooling, communicate with friends and family during isolation and improve their mental wellbeing by being able to access the outside world whilst staying in the safety of the refuge
£1000 – Will enable 3 women to receive Outreach Support tailored to their needs
