Thank You for Your Support

Hello all,

We want to start by saying a massive thank you for all the support you’ve given us over the past few challenging months.

You may have read about the increase in Domestic Violence & Abuse during the lockdown. We have been working hard to adapt our services to meet this increased demand despite experiencing an initial loss of income due to the cancellation of fundraising events and the temporary closure of our charity shop.

It’s thanks to the generosity of our supporters that we’ve been able to continue supporting vulnerable women and children.

To stay updated on the work of our charity, please follow us on social media:

Leeds Women’s Aid launches Live Chat service

In order to make sure everyone feels safe accessing our support services, we have launched a confidential online chat through the Leeds Women’s Aid website.

We have seen a huge demand for support during the pandemic, with helpline calls doubling and referrals increasing by more than 60%. Searches for refuge beds increased by 100% in one week, with women and families trying to find somewhere to flee to.

In order to access support, visit and click on the blue ‘Chat’ icon.

The Live Chat service is open:

Monday to Friday 1 to 3pm

Tuesday and Thursday 7:30 to 9:30pm


Leeds Women’s Aid Charity Shop reopens

We are pleased to announce that our charity shop has now re-opened following the easing of lockdown restrictions. Our shop team have worked tirelessly to ensure safety measures have been implemented throughout the premises including installation of hand sanitiser stations, Perspex till screens and a new one-way system to help maintain social distancing.

The shop has been replenished with new seasonal clothes and accessories so customers can stock up on summer staples such as playsuits, linen trousers and maxi dresses.

The shop opening hours are Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and the address is 102 New Road Side, Horsforth, LS18 4QB. We can accept donations between 10am and 2pm on Mondays and Thursdays.

Thank you for your support,

Nik & the Team
