Newark Women's Aid

Charity description

Newark Women's Aid logo
Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. Newark Women's Aid was founded in 1975 by a local women' group. We provide safe housing and support services for women and children who have suffered any form of domestic violence and abuse.
The emotional support we provide is key to reducing the impact  domestic violence has on the emotional health and wellbeing of women and children.
We support women to enable them to rebuild their lives.
Our Women's Outreach Service provides support for women living in the local community.
Every £ you donate really does make a difference to the lives of the families we support.
We also take donations of clothing, bedding, towels and non-perishable food items.
Please email us if you are able to assist us in any way
