How Can I Support Bexley Women’s Aid?
As a registered charity, Bexley Women’s Aid depends on support from the community to help us in our daily work. There are a number of ways that you can help.
Items We Require
BWA needs a variety of items in order to help women and children in the refuge and to return to independent living in the community. The women and their children often arrive at the refuge with no personal possessions so your gifts would be most appreciated. We aim to provide welcome packs for each new resident.
The following items are always of assistance:
- Non-perishable food items: tinned meat/fish, pasta, rice, coffee, tea, sugar
- New kitchen items including housekeeping items (eg. bin bags, washing up liquid) or home decor items
- Shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shower gel, nappies (for welcome packs)
Women leaving the refuge frequently need furniture, washer/dryers, and other household items. Please call us on 0208 301 1536 if you have something you would like to donate and we will let you know if there is a current need. Please also allow time for us to arrange a collection.
