Major donors are crucial to the work we do, making a significant impact to local women across Hertfordshire.  


Our work is focused on empowering women to break free of domestic abuse, gain the skills and training to become financial independent of their abusers and support them to achieve the physical and mental resilience to overcome the trauma of abuse.


With your philanthropic support, we can continue to reach more women to lead positive and independent lives and remain safe.
