New Refuge – Furnishing Fund

In a time where we hear about the negative impact of austerity cuts on refuges throughout the country, You First have positive and exciting news for Dorset and the national network of refuge provision!

You First have secured alternative and larger refuge accommodation for women and children fleeing domestic violence and abuse. We’re thrilled to be able to offer a much needed safe space, but now we need your help…

The circumstances under which the women come to us often mean they arrive with minimal clothing and provisions. We aim to provide a fully functioning living space, and currently need new white goods to kit out the kitchen. Can you spare a few pounds to make this a reality?

Any support through donations and/or sharing the link to our fundraising page would be appreciated not only by You First but by the women and children living at the refuge.
