Our partnership with Montagu Evans
We are delighted to be working with Montagu Evans as their chosen Charity of the Year. Montagu Evans have set a target to raise £30k to support the refurbishment of a women’s refuge. Staff will join together with everything from bakes sales to races to quiz nights and sweepstakes to achieve their shared goal.
A Safe Place to Call Home
Montagu Evans is fundraising to support the refurbishment of a Housing for Women refuge in London. The refuges provide critical services for women and children escaping abuse and fleeing domestic violence.
The refurbishment will improve the living space, creating a more welcoming and friendly environment for women and children as they embark on a new phase of life.
Housing for Women
Housing for Women believes that everyone has a right to affordable housing regardless of circumstance. They have been providing homes and services to women and their families across London for nearly a century and through our work we enable women to develop their skills and confidence and live independently in the community.
They empower women to escape abusive situations and rebuild their lives. Their services are open to everyone, irrespective of gender, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity. Housing for Women does everything they can to sign post or refer people on to other specialist services through one of their partner organisations.
A charitable partnership
We have been working with Housing for Women for over eight years, by providing affordable accommodation for women in need of safety and shelter. We are excited to continue working them,creating a more welcoming feel to one of their refuges – all made possible with the support of Montagu Evans.
Housing for Women also aim to increase public awareness of domestic abuse so that the norm in our society is to recognise and challenge abusive behaviour. They do this by providing information and support, by training professionals on how to provide and signpost support, and by using resources to provide emergency accommodation and support for women and children who have experience domestic abuse.
