IDAS needs to raise around £100,000 each year so that we can continue to provide our vital, life-changing services. Every donation, no matter how small, will help people flee domestic abuse and rebuild their self-esteem, and support children and young people who have witnessed violence to recover from their experience.
A one-off donation of just £20 could pay for essential items, including nappies, sanitary products and toiletries, for families arriving at our refuges with nothing – helping them to get through their first night.
A donation of £40 could help a mother flee abuse, and travel to safety with her children.
Help a victim of domestic abuse to escape to safety, by donating the cost of a night in one of our refuges.
Your donation could help to run our free, confidential helpline for an hour, providing a literal lifeline for families trapped at home with an abuser.
Help us to give a warm welcome and a place of safety to families who have fled abuse and violence.
Every donation, no matter how small, will make a difference.
A monthly gift is the best possible way to ensure we can be there for everyone who needs our help. In these difficult times charities like ours need your help more than ever, and even a small, regular donation will make a difference, helping us to plan our work and know how much income we’ll have in the future. Your regular donation could help a mother escape to one of our refuges with her children, provide essential items including food, toiletries and nappies, or pay for a non-molestation order to keep them safe. If you can support IDAS with a regular donation, every time you hear about our lifesaving work, you’ll know you’ve played a part in it.
