We love it when people get involved to help us and the women and children we support. As a charity, Women’s Aid Orkney receives funding to run the refuge and provide support services. But that doesn’t include the extra things that we do to support women in crisis.
There are a number of ways to donate to Women’s Aid Orkney to support us and the women and families we work with:
- Regular Donation
- Earn money for free when you shop online
- Donate clothes and Toys
- Organise a fundraiser
- Give your time
