Please email if you would like to donate any items to Cardiff Women’s Aid. 

The needs of the women and families we support can change very quickly, therefore we will let you know what is needed when you get in touch with us.  Due to limited storage space we are not always able to accept items, please get in touch with us to discuss your donation in the first instance.


We are unable to accept unsolicited donations, opened or used items, home cooked food, electrical items, candles, or razors.

Make a monetary donation

When a woman or family accesses our refuge, they will often arrive with nothing; no clothes, no underwear, and no toothbrush. Monetary donations help us provide support packages and items to women and children specific to their needs.

A monetary donation could purchase emergency items, clothing in the correct size, toiletries for specific skin/hair types, food that adheres to dietary needs, and age appropriate books, toys, and games. 

We are so thankful for every offer of a gift in kind we receive, but we would be grateful if you would consider making a monetary donation so that the women and families we support are able to choose their own clothes, toiletries, or pastimes.

What your support could achieve

Cardiff Women's Aid are currently using funds in four main ways:

  • In our emergency housing/refuge units to purchase beds, bedding, toiletries, and clothing.
  • Providing women leaving the service with new accommodation supplies such as bedding and kitchenware.
  • Refurbishing refuge units (paint, carpets, labour costs) so women are provided a safe and warm environment.  
  • Supplies for our aftercare and recovery activities including craft supplies and group work journals.
could provide a relocation starter pack, including kitchen supplies (crockery and cutlery), bedding, etc.
could provide a child in refuge with a starter pack: brand new pajamas, underwear, toiletries, a toy and some books.
could fund our aftercare workshops and services for women recovering from trauma and abuse.
could buy an 'Own my Story' journal for women attending recovery groups
could buy a single quilt for a room in refuge, keeping women and children safe and warm.
