Refuge's Recent Activity
"Refuge established the world’s first safe house for women and children escaping domestic violence in 1971. Since then, it has grown to become the country’s largest specialist provider of domestic violence services and the leading voice in the campaign to end abuse. On any given day, Refuge supports over 1,600 women and their children through its services, plus a further 400 women each day on the National Domestic Violence Helpline (run in partnership with Women’s Aid).
Refuge operates a national network of services which includes: independent domestic and sexual violence advocacy, refuges, outreach, sanctuary, floating support and culturally specific accommodation and outreach for BAMER women and children. Nationally, Refuge manages 45 refuges, working in partnership with 24 Social Landlords in 16 local authorities.
