Leaving a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will is one of the most effective things you can do to help women and children trapped in abusive relationships.

Domestic abuse affects million of women, with one in seven children witnessing domestic abuse during their childhood. The scale of the problem is undeniable but we’re committed to creating a better world, a world where domestic abuse doesn’t exist.

Here’s what your gift could help us do

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

Force through new laws

Your gift could help us protect survivor’s rights and campaign to bring about the change we need to end abuse. We successfully fought to make coercive and controlling behaviour illegal – our campaigning works.

Make sure no one faces abuse alone

Our support services are life saving and help thousands of women every year to escape abuse. But we need long term funding to be able to deliver them. We couldn’t keep them open without your generous support.

Training

Change attitudes and end abuse

We work with the police, the government, schools and communities to provide them with expert training that challenges myths and misconceptions about abuse and helps people respond effectively to support survivors.

“ I chose to leave a gift in my will to Women’s Aid as I am absolutely horrified by the amount of domestic abuse which goes on in this country and the impact it has on the lives of women and children.”

We need to end abuse now

Millions of women are trapped in abusive relationships. Scared and frightened, they know leaving can be dangerous.

No one should face domestic abuse alone. We’re here so they don’t have to.

With a gift in your will, you could help women like Dawn, Mandy and Sharon to escape domestic abuse and find freedom and safety.

One day, your gift could help us end domestic abuse for good.
