Every year, thousands of women and children

are forced to flee the violence in their own homes.

For these families, a refuge is more than just

a safe place. It is a place where they can regain

the strength to build new lives.

But recent cuts have shut down

more and more women's refuges.

In Gloucestershire, Stroud Women’s Refuge

is the only one left.

We can add our voice to keep it open,

get up-to-date and get active.

Hosted by Gloucestershire Quakers

Background note

Nationally, women’s refuge services began as a vital source of crisis accommodation.  Started forty years ago this year, the Refuge in Stroud was no different.   As a result of persistent fund-raising, they began to provide more. Today it’s a vital place of safety for women with nowhere else to hide; it’s also one where they can regain strength and confidence - and their children can learn to be free of fear.

All this work is now at risk, with cuts in funds, restrictions introduced on women able to use refuge services, time limits on how long they can stay.  In the county of Gloucestershire, where once there were four women’s refuges, there is now only this one.

Quakers in Gloucestershire are working out ways to add our voice to the protest.  In our witness to justice and peace in the world, we can do no other.   We would welcome friends from other churches to join us and become better informed about the work of this Refuge – and the challenges it faces.
