In the past 3 years, Wycombe Women’s Aid has directly supported over 3,000 women, 260 children and 130 young people affected by domestic violence. Our work enables women to leave behind the danger and trauma of living with domestic violence and establish safe and healthy lives for themselves and their children.
Could their courage and motivation inspire you to
make a difference?
Wycombe Women’s Aid would not be able to carry out the work that it does without valuable and on-going financial support from individuals, groups and organisations within the local community. Your generosity and commitment will help to improve the lives of local women and children experiencing domestic violence.
We have a number of different ways that you can help us to raise funds to cover our operations. Please follow the link below to learn more.
