Please help support our women living in refuges by donating what you can.
Your donations mean everything to us ♥️
Elle for elle is a charitable foundation that connects a wellbeing programme to refuges in UK. Our aim is to implement the proper infrastructure to start the process and to maintain a healthy mind, changing negative patterns with education, wellbeing therapies and life skills. We believe that our process has a good chance of preventing repeat patterns of behaviour, leading to positive mental, physical and emotional health.
There’s a national crises of lack of refuges to warrant the amount of women and children trying to escape abuse. On just one day in 2017, 94 women and 90 children were turned away from refuge. 60% of all referrals to refuges were declined in 2016-17, normally due to a lack of available space.(women’s aid stats) Due to the current social housing shortage women are facing prolonged periods within the refuge. Refuges are therefore unable to accommodate new cases of domestic abuse.
We propose a change in the criteria to add the below.
Most of the criteria will stay the same with our red, Amber, green timeline of support put in place. This will then give the residence a better chance of moving on quicker with better prospects.
