Bake a Difference
Last year we worked with over 5,000 women, 600 children and we took over 10,000 calls on our helpline. Sadly, 1 in 3 women in Nottingham will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime.
To help us continue our life-changing, life-saving frontline work, we’re asking people all over Nottingham and South Nottinghamshire to hold a bake event this September to raise funds for Women’s Aid Integrated Services. Every cake, pie and quiche you bake will make a difference

Why Bake a Difference for WAIS?
£25… could help us take a call on our 24-hour Freephone Helpline and support a woman to get the help she needs*
£50… could provide food for a destitute woman and her children for a week, when no public funds are available
£177… could provide basic costs for a woman or a child to stay in our refuge for a month
£450… could help a woman and her children set up her new home after leaving our refuge
£3,000… could provide an 8-10 week Freedom Programme (healthy relationships course) for up 12 women, helping them to recognise abusive behaviours in future relationships
*For every call received, we make an average of seven outgoing calls to help each woman
“I’ve been a teacher for 46 years and in that time I have seen so many women trying to protect themselves and their children and on several occasions I have taken them myself to a place of safety. I have stood up to their bullying partners and had to keep the mother’s whereabouts secret. In 46 years the situation has changed little, there are still bullying men and women who need a place of safety . Please support this charity because without it where will support be given to those who need it most”
