This tax time, give the gift of a safer future.

Women and children escaping family violence need urgent and significant help, and your tax-deductible donation can make sure they receive it.

It also gives survivors something that has been missing from their lives for years: hope.

Families escaping family violence often arrive at Refuge Victoria with just the clothes on their backs. Sometimes they will have a few belongings in a plastic shopping bag. They have left behind family, friends and community, and for many, the path to a safer future means starting from scratch.

Your donation to Refuge Victoria, whether big or small, will help set a family on the road to recovery. It will provide groceries to sustain the family during their stay in refuge, and clothes to replace the ones they left behind; it will give them access to the professional support needed to start a new life. It will allow Refuge Victoria to provide a safe, clean home for the whole family.

Throughout the year, Refuge Victoria receives donations of goods and services from a number of businesses, families and community organisations, but while these gifts are always much appreciated, financial donations are also very important.

The needs of individual families are as diverse as the families themselves, and not all donated goods are suitable for every family. Allowing victim survivors to work with us determining what goods and resources will best help themselves and their children is an empowering experience and plays an important part equipping them with the confidence and autonomy required to create a new safer future.

If you can, please give generously to our winter appeal.
