Leaving a legacy

Leaving a legacy

By leaving a gift in your will to Women’s Aid you can leave a lasting legacy of hope to women and children experiencing domestic abuse.

For over 40 years we have been working to build a world where violence against women and children is no longer tolerated so that all can live a life free from abuse.

Change rarely happens overnight, but by leaving a gift in your will to Women’s Aid you can play a crucial role in creating a safer future.

Legacies are special gifts, entrusted to us by those who share our values and vision.  Legacy gifts are critical to the future of our work and the future of women and children across the country.

No matter what size, your gift will be used to transform lives, strengthen life-saving services, and protect the rights and safety of survivors in the years ahead.

We have over 40 years’ experience

Growing from groups rooted in local communities, today we are a national federation of over 220 life-saving organisations.

We have the trust of survivors.

We listen to survivors, making sure they are believed, know that the abuse is not their fault, and that their experiences are understood. Our needs-led approach, focuses on supporting survivors at every step to feel safer and able to rebuild their lives.

We have respect within the sector

We work with a variety of organisations and institutions including the police, the government, schools and local domestic abuse services and provide expert training, qualifications and consultancy to a range of agencies and professionals.
