Donate your leftover currency to Refuge

Refuge is the largest single provider of specialist services to survivors of domestic, sexual and gender-based abuse in the UK

1 in 4 women will experience domestic abuse at some point in their lifetime and on average two women are killed each week in England and Wales by a current or former partner.

On any given day Refuge services support thousands of women and their children, helping them to overcome the physical, emotional, financial and logistical impacts of abuse and rebuild their lives — free from fear.

Refuge supports thousands of women and children who turn to them when they’re trying to escape domestic abuse.

By raising money for Refuge, supporters help provide life-saving support to women and children across Refuge’s services – from the 24-Hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline to the charity’s refuges.
