Support our Emergency Fund
Donate today to help a young woman in financial crisis get through the next few weeks.
Thanks to your amazing support we've exceeded our original target and raised an amazing £126,000.
As we enter a new stage of the crisis, we want to make sure economically vulnerable young women continue to receive support.
We've set ourselves a new target of £200,000 so that we can help even more young women who are trapped in poverty as a result of the virus.
A donation from you today will provide a young woman with a few essentials such as food, and money towards her bills. More than that, it will let her know that we are all looking out for her, and that she has somewhere to turn.
I am currently living one step from the edge, there’s money to cover bills but not all of them, like there would have been when I was working. The money will help me to buy food and keep up my household for the time being."

How the fund works
We are reallocating some of our resources, something we must do to meet the urgent needs of young women. But the need for help will be far greater than the resources we have available, which is why we need your support.
We are working in partnership with other charities to get the funds to young women who need it the most.
Young women referred to us through our partner charities will receive £150 to pay for food and help with other essentials such as utility and rent bills in the next few weeks.
The emergency fund has already been helped by significant donations and the generosity of our feminist allies, including long term supporters Olay and the Smallwood Trust, as well as members of the public through campaigning organisation 38 Degrees.
