Fundraising Events


Edinburgh Women’s Aid is an all women, confidential organisation which provides information, support and, where appropriate, refuge accommodation for women and any accompanying children who have experienced or are at risk of domestic abuse.

Women and children who rebuild their lives away from abuse will often have left familiar surroundings, employment, and their material assets. In many instances they will also have had to leave family and friends.

Along with other charities, our funding has not increased whilst the need for our services has grown. It is becoming more and more difficult for women, children and young people who use our services to have their basic needs met. Therefore we are asking for donations which will benefit women and children throughout the year as well as Christmas gifts.

We suggest the following donations:

Gift vouchers – These can be used for basic fresh foods, school clothing and family needs.

  • Asda
  • Tesco
  • Sainsbury’s
  • Morrisons

Gift vouchers for children’s activities:

  • Bowling
  • Cinema
  • Soft Play

NEW Household Items:

  • Pillows
  • Single duvets
  • Single bedding
  • Cot bedding

NEW Toiletries – unused and unopened

Christmas gifts for women and children: please send unwrapped.

Wrapping paper and labels

We recognise that this is a demanding time of the year for everyone, and that the current financial climate remains difficult for everyone, therefore any help at all would be very much appreciated.

If you would like to make a donation please contact us by email or telephone, 0131 315 8111, to discuss arrangements. We would be very grateful if donations could be received by Monday 19th December.

You can also give online via our Just Giving page (donations benefit from Gift Aid when made through Just Giving) or by cheque made payable to Edinburgh Women’s Aid Ltd.
