Fundraise for Rebuilding Lives UK to support the population groups that are most vulnerable to and affected by domestic abuse: women and children.
The term domestic abuse describes a set of behaviours ranging from isolation, verbal abuse, harassment, stalking, threats and intimidation, manipulative coercive behaviour, physical and sexual assault to rape and murder.
1 in 4 women in the UK will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime.
1 in 5 children in the UK have lived with an adult perpetrating domestic abuse.
Perpetrators frequently express their anger and vindictiveness not only towards women and children but also by creating severe damages in the households. This destructive behaviour results in the survivors having to live, often long after the abuse, in an environment that constantly reminds them of the violent, intimidating situations they have experienced.

Why we need your support
By fundraising with us, you will give our survivors a chance to repair their homes, make them safer and more pleasant and to eventually disengage emotionally and psychologically from disturbing memories and flashbacks of violence and harassment that the damaged appliances, walls, rooms or whole properties invoke.
No amount of money raised for our charity is small. Your every contribution is valuable and makes a difference in the lives and families of our survivors, as the examples below showcase.
£150 can help us to change the locks on a front door and fit a safety chain.
£350 can be used to replace a room door and repaint.
£550 can contribute to patching repair holes in plaster work and touching up areas.
£600 can help us to replace the carpet and under lay to an average room.
£1000 can be invested in replacing handrails, spindles and newel post for stairs.
