Our mission

Is to protect women and children in Leeds from the damage that domestic violence can inflict on their lives. We believe that all women and children have the right to live their lives free from fear and harm. We will achieve this by providing women with choices from a range of services including temporary supported housing, outreach support, telephone support and floating support.

Well done to  Gemma & Co for their gallant effort in walking the 30 miles from Skipton to Leeds.


12 intrepid walkers set off at 5:45am on Sunday 4th September, and managed to complete the  walk in less than 10 hours! (12 hrs including breaks). A well deserved pint was had at The Bridge Pub just before 6pm.


So far they have managed to raise £420.  Thank you to all of you who took part in this challenge!
