South Ayrshire Women’s Aid The Willows Appeal Fund

Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. South Ayrshire Women's Aid provide a confidential service that gives information, support and temporary accommodation to women, children and you people who have experience of Domestic Abuse. We save lives.

Our Appeal:

We want to change our refuge into a facility fit for purpose in the 21st century. This means changing from eight individual en-suite bedrooms, with all other facilities shared, into eight individual flats where families and single women can have the space, privacy and security to recover from the trauma of living with domestic abuse.
We would be grateful for any help you can give. No matter the size of the donation every penny will help us reach our goal of £500,000  

Domestic Abuse is the physical, mental or sexual abuse of a woman by someone with whom she is/has been in a relationship with. Physical abuse can include punching, strangling, using weapons, scalding
Emotional abuse can include humiliation/degradation, keeping her from contact with her friends and family, threats against the woman or her children
Sexual abuse can include being forced to take part in sexual acts against her will, being sexually assaulted with objects, rape
We know that 1 in 4 women will experience DA at some point in their lives. In Scotland between 2000-2001 groups received almost 60,000 requests for help.Women and their children who are fleeing DA often have no choice but to leave everything behind, often turning up at South Ayrshire Women's Aid with very few possessions. Your kind donations, no matter how small go directly to provide essential items for women, children & young people. These funds will make a difference to those who access our support and services.
