Help us make Christmas bright for families who need it most.

Every day we work with families like May’s, who have survived violence, abuse and homelessness. May and her children deserve to have a gift to open and a special meal to share this holiday season.

Will you give a little so they can make memories that mean a lot?

Each year we work with over 20,000 people to help them to be safer and more supported. We are asking you to help us make the holidays happy for the many families doing it tough.

Your donation will help:

  • Families who are struggling to obtain everyday essentials and are on the brink of homelessness.
  • Women and children who are trapped by financial and other pressures in neglectful, abusive and violent relationships.
  • People living with disabilities who are isolated and vulnerable.

Your generosity can help us support hundreds of children and families experiencing family violence or related trauma.

(Through Kids on Track) I learnt more about how drugs and alcohol affect our bodies. I don't want to end up the same way as Dad so I can now care for my body and make better decisions than what he did.

Resilience for Life has been nothing short of wonderful for me, and enormously empowering. I am feeling so much more optimistic and confident in myself, my driving and taking care of my husband.

My (Windermere) counsellor has been one of the most important supports I have had throughout this whole process. She is amazing. I now see things from a completely different perspective.

I am on the lookout now too - next time I am in a relationship, I will be able to recognise the signs of domestic violence and I won’t let myself get stuck in that sort of position again.”
