Each year we have an appeal month where the National Collective of Independent Women's Refuges spread the word of domestic violence and what the community can do to support those affect.
You can take part in the annual event by donating a couple of hours to collect over the Christchurch/Canterbury area.
Crisis Line Shifts
Answering crisis line calls from women who are victims of domestic violence and/or related issues - assessing and counselling, referring to refuge or other support agencies. Also includes providing transportation for clients of the Trust and bringing the woman and any children to a safe house, registering and settling them.
Battered Women's Trust are kindly donated a number of household and material items. We have limited space to store donations therefore require some help in organising where donations can be stored as well as collecting them from generous people.
There are various events throughout the year in which you can participate in. This may involve organising, collecting , setting up, gathering other volunteers to support, being a waiter at an event and much more.
You may even wish to have your own fundraiser on our behalf. Talk to us about how this might happen and what a good theme might be.
