Our services offer a lifeline to women and children fleeing domestic abuse. With your help we can continue to be there for them. Some families that come into our service have fled with nothing but the clothes they arrive in and the children rarely get to bring along favourite toys and comfort possessions.
Women’s Aid in Luton is only able to carry out support because of the continued generosity of individuals, local community groups and corporate supporters to help us to continue to provide this vital support. See below for ways in which you can help.
50th anniversary fundraiser #50for50
For our 50th year anniversary, we’re launching a year-long appeal called #50for50 to raise £50,000. This money will be used to improve our five refuges, providing better environments for women and children escaping domestic abuse.
At Women’s Aid, we provide support to hundreds of women and children every year. We never wanted to be celebrating 50 years of helping women and children in our local area escape violence and abuse. We wish we didn’t have to exist. But the reality is we support hundreds every year – and we are always busy.
We don’t judge
We always believe
We support women to make their own choices about their future

Donate Unwanted Items
Women’s Aid in Luton needs a variety of items in order to help women and children in refuge as well as once they move on living independently in the community. The following items are always of assistance;
- Non- perishable food items: tinned goods, pasta, coffee, tea sugar.
- Toiletry items: Shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap (un-opened)
Women leaving the refuge also frequently need to start up home and need the following items:
- General furniture
- New kitchen items
- Home decor items
- Other household items
PLEASE NOTE WE CANNOT TAKE ANY ELECTRICAL ITEMS
Please call us on 01582 876636 and we will let you know if there is a current need.
Food Vouchers/Gift Cards:
Many of the women we help come to us without any source of income so are not able to purchase food for themselves or their children. We never see any of our women go without and try to provide them best we can with sufficient food items. However, donations of vouchers or gift cards would prove invaluable for many reasons including; allowing our ladies who follow a religion or have special diet requirements to go out and select what they require, ones who have intolerances or allergies and of course just simply to have the freedom to have a choice in what they eat.
Any major supermarket brands accepted. Please post or hand in to Head Office.
