Spread LOVE through


A centre supporting over 50 vulnerable women and children needs over £1000 every month to keep going...

Choose a family/individual from the people below and the amount you would like to sponsor them.

From £12.50 (1 weeks support) to £50 (the whole month).

Names have been changed for protection but we will share with you the name of the people/person you are sponsoring, a picture, what we know of their story and how you can support them in prayer. Should that family/individual move on from the centre during your sponsorship, we will allocate you a someone new.

Your sponsorship will contribute to funding the whole crisis centre that continues providing refuge and rehabilitation to women escaping violence, homelessness, addiction and poverty.
