How to Donate
Your help will help save lives and make a difference for the most vulnerable people in our society.
What sort of things can I donate?
Books, clothes, toys, household items, bric a brac, pots, pans, cutlery, furniture etc.
How will my donation be used?
Women and children arrive at the refuge they may have brought very few belongings with them. When they are at the refuge or are setting up their new homes they will need things for their new home. Any toys, or books (for women and children) would be most welcome. Also bric a brac, kitchen equipment, household items, toys and clothes can help us to raise money for the women and children to go on trips, which gives them the chance to socialise and build networks, and can help to develop communication skills, confidence and self esteem.
You can also support women and children by the following ways:
- Support our work into the future by setting up a regular gift by direct debit

By Share Gift: If you have unwanted shares, ‘Share Gift’’ collects small holdings of shares until they have sufficient amounts to sell so they can use the funds generated to make donations to UK charities. .
By CAF card or cheque: If you have an account with CAF (Charities Aid Foundation), you can make tax effective donations or by sending us a CAF cheque.
Your company can support vulnerable women and children and make a difference to their lives.

Ashiana’s core aim is to ‘relieve’ the distress and suffering experienced by women from black, minority ethnic and refugee groups, in particular Asian women, who have been maltreated by their partners, other family members or men known to them, and any children of such women’. By making a will and leaving a legacy it would help to save so many lives.
