Our core costs

Without our highly experienced support staff, the women who use our refuge would have no one to turn to. We need to keep a regular stock of food and toiletries for those women who arrive at our service with nothing but the clothes on their back. We have to pay electricity and gas bills like every other residential property, which run into thousands of pounds per year.

All of these are known as ‘core costs’ – notoriously hard for charities to access funds for – and yet they are our backbone.
