A house is not a home when it is empty. 

Winter lockdown is impacting women and children fleeing domestic abuse, creating further insecurity, adding additional mental, physical and economic stress on survivors. 

Solace is supporting women and children who are living in empty homes with empty kitchen cupboards - not knowing when they will be able to eat a proper meal or sleep in a proper bed.

You can make a difference.

Donate now.


The homes that women are being forced to live in are empty. They are given empty walls with no kitchen, no way to feed their families. 

A donation could save a life this winter.

Our emergency fund has already helped over 200 families with small grants to get through the last 6 months. But winter is getting harder. 

Supporting Solace means that no woman will left alone, forced to flee with nothing, with no support due to COVID-19 restrictions.

A donation to our winter appeal could make a difference this winter.
