Thank you! Gracias! Obrigada!

The contributions of people like you make all this work possible. Unfortunately, we are still facing the consequences of the Covid pandemic, and now we are encountering the additional challenges of the Cost of Living crisis and Brexit. In difficult times like these, we need your support more than ever before.

The needs of vulnerable women and children survivors of gender-based violence are only increasing, and with your support, we will continue to work tirelessly to continue providing much-needed support.

If you would like to know the wider impact of your donation, take a look at our latest ANNUAL REPORT 2021/2022.

You can also take a look at the short clip LAWA is Home which portrays the stories of four Latin American women supported by us and what it means to them to be able to access an organisation like ours.

Why should you donate to LAWA?

LAWA has been working for the past 34 years to ensure that the women who come to our organisation seeking help do not become part of this tragic statistic. Despite the fact that refuge funding has decreased dramatically, violence has not. Several refuges have been forced to close their doors due to funding cuts, posing a serious threat and putting women’s lives in jeopardy. These women who are trying to break free from domestic violence, and sexual abusers are finding it increasingly difficult to find safe places to go. Migrant women face an even more difficult situation: vulnerability, limited English skills, and ignorance of their rights in a foreign country.

Our refuge is more than just a place to sleep: it’s a place of healing, hope, and new beginnings.
