Women’s Aid in Luton is a voluntary organisation supporting women and children fleeing domestic abuse. Some families that come into our service have fled with nothing but the clothes they arrive in and the children rarely get to bring along favourite toys and comfort possessions.
In order to support families, Women’s Aid in Luton provides toiletries and essential items for women and clothing and toys for children that have left their homes with nothing.
Luton Women’s Aid are able to provide all of the above services because of the continued generosity of individuals, local community groups and corporate supporters to help us to continue to provide this vital support. See below for ways in which you can help.

Please call us on 01582 876636 and we will let you know if there is a current need.
Food Vouchers/Gift Cards:
Many of the women we help come to us without any source of income so are not able to purchase food for themselves or their children. We never see any of our women go without and try to provide them best we can with sufficient food items. However, donations of vouchers or gift cards would prove invaluable for many reasons including; allowing our ladies who follow a religion or have special diet requirements to go out and select what they require, ones who have intolerances or allergies and of course just simply to have the freedom to have a choice in what they eat.
Any major supermarket brands accepted. Please post or hand in to Head Office.
