About this site

Refuge developed this website in partnership with National Domestic Abuse Helpline workers and domestic abuse survivors. Refuge is continuing to develop more digital channels through which women fleeing domestic abuse can seek support.  

Refuge is grateful for the generous support and passion from Mirum, the agency which designed the website. Refuge has also benefitted from the support from Sitecore and other partners.  

Refuge would like to thank the funders of the National Domestic Abuse Helpline; the Home Office, Comic Relief, London Councils, and Refuge’s individual and corporate partners.
