Join Friends of the Women’s Refuge The ’Friends’ was started in 1998 by three members of the Management Committee of Wirral Women and Children’s Aid with the purpose of fundraising for the charity. Many women and children come to the Refuge with very few belongings, having left their homes in a hurry. The money raised by the Friends goes towards providing some of the essentials, such as shoes, bus passes, clothing and sometimes a trip out for the children. The Friends receive the money from public collections in local supermarkets, as well as from regular monthly donations. Some Friends have even raised money by walking the Wirral coast or running a charity shop for a day. If you are interested in joining the Friends to help raise money for the Refuge, please phone us on 0151 643 9766 or write to us at Wirral Women and Children’s Aid, PO Box 14, Birkenhead, CH41 6PX Make a Donation If you would like to donate money to the Refuge, click here for a donation form.

We could not manage to do our work without the generosity of the public. Many thanks for any help you can provide. We would like to thank Laura Higginbottom for her patience, expertise and time in building this site.
