Without your help, Ashiana cannot provide the vital information, support and services that help hundreds of people every year. Call us to chat about how you can become involved and support our work. Below are a few suggestions:

Women and children usually arrive at the refuge with very few belongings. Many women are also setting up a new home with limited income. Any household equipment, toys, clothes and basic cosmetics and hygiene equipment would make a huge difference.

There are lots of ways your company can get involved and support our work, from one off donations to nominating Ashiana as a Charity of the Year.

Does your company choose a Charity of the Year?  If so, please consider nominating Ashiana.

Our team will work with you to ensure that the experience is mutually rewarding. We can help employees with fundraising activities, media coverage and volunteering opportunities.

We will ensure that we keep you fully informed of how your support is making a difference to the women and children who find themselves in life threatening and abusive situations.

Contact us to discuss further.

There are so many ways you can raise money for Ashiana

Whether you decide to hold a local event or one off activities such as quizzes, raffles, jumble sales, sports events or a high adrenaline skydive, there are many fun ways of supporting our work and doing something personally rewarding!

We rely on your generosity to help keep our vital services running. Contact us with your idea and we will discuss how we can support you.

If you are considering making a gift to Ashiana within your Will and would like to talk to us before making any arrangements, don’t hesitate to Contact Us.

We value all our volunteers their efforts supporting the people we work with and driving our organisation forward.We welcome applications from people who feel they have the time and the appropriate skills to work with us, and will do our best to provide a placement which meets the needs of the project whilst at the same time suiting the skills and desires of each volunteer.

We do ask volunteers to commit to a minimum of five hours per week (in a single block within the hours of 9.00 am to 5.00 pm, weekdays only) for both the volunteer and the organisation to benefit from the volunteering opportunity.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us.

We are also currently looking for new Trustees to enhance our current Board and bring key skills such as legal, business, change management and marketing. If you think you could help make a difference, email info@ashianasheffield.org


Campaigning is an important part of what we do. The campaigns we lead and become involved in are as a result of the work directly carried out with the women that access our service.

Our campaigns highlight issues related to women from BAMER communities and the daily issues that they face daily in regards to violence, justice and equality.

Our awareness raising and campaigning is shared throughout our local and national networks and we also work with the following for better outcomes for women:

  • Key government departments i.e Forced Marriage Unit, FGM Unit
  • Non-governmental organisations i.e. Salvation Army
  • Partners
  • Communities

To become involved, consider volunteering with Ashiana.

Ashiana welcomes trainee and qualified counsellors as well as social work student placements within the service. Ashiana also works with local colleges and universities to offer a variety of placement opportunities.
