Funding and Fundraising


We have been informed that there is a women who is going door to door collecting money on behalf of St Albans & Hertsmere Women’s Refuge. We would like to make it very clear that this person does not represent SAHWR or does not have the authority to collect money on our behalf. SAHWR does NOT collect door to door. Should anybody experience this please call 101 and report this to Hertfordshire Constabulary who are aware that this activity is taking place!

As a registered charity, the work of the project relies completely on funding. We receive grants from St Albans District Council, Hertsmere Borough Council, Herts County Council Children Schools and Families and Supporting People which helps to underpin the day to day costs of running the Refuge.

We regularly make funding applications to charitable trusts and if successful the money is put towards specific projects or needs. We are also heavily reliant on local charitable donations and have received support from The Abbey, Soroptomists and other local businesses including Sainsburys (St Albans) and Waitrose who donate food to us weekly.

The ongoing help and support of our stakeholders and benefactors is never taken for granted and we are very grateful for all of those who contribute so generously.
