The CaringEveryday.co.uk Team, part of Johnson & Johnson Ltd, has partnered with Refuge, a charity that supports women and children who have experienced domestic violence.
On any given day Refuge supports over 3,000 women and children to escape domestic violence and rebuild their lives – free from fear. Refuge has been providing life-saving and life-changing support to women and children for over four decades, ever since it opened the world’s first safe house in West London, in 1971.
Refuge runs a range of services including:
- A national network of refuges
- Community-based outreach services
- Independent Domestic Violence Advocacy (IDVA) for women at the highest risk of serious injury and homicide
- The Freephone 24 Hour National Domestic Violence Helpline, run in partnership with Women’s Aid
- Child support workers
The CaringEveryday.co.uk team is proud to support Refuge and we donated to help run its support services*. Refuge told us how it is facing challenging times ahead, “Our services save lives and change lives. But they are under serious threat. We have faced year on year funding cuts and we urgently need public support to help sustain our work into the future. That’s why we are so grateful to Johnson and Johnson Ltd for its fantastic support, which has literally helped us keep the doors to our vital services open.”
*Refuge does not endorse any Johnson & Johnson Ltd products or brands. The value of the donation was not affected by the sale of any Johnson & Johnson Ltd products. £75k helped Refuge, charity no. 277424 (www.refuge.org.uk) to support women and children in October and November 2014.
