Leave a legacy

Leave a legacy


By leaving a legacy, your generosity will mean that we can continue providing vital services to women and children who have experienced domestic abuse, both now and into the future.

Any amount, large or small will make a difference.  A little goes along way and we are grateful for whatever you can give.

Leaving a legacy can be much easier than you might think.  If you have already made a will, you can still leave us a gift.  Your solicitor or legal adviser will be able to advise you and it is best to get the advice of a solicitor when making any changes to your will.  Making a will ensures that those you want to benefit do so.


If you have any questions, please get in touch by emailing sally@wais.org.uk.

Every minute one incident of domestic violence is reported to the police.


One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime.


Two women per week on average are killed by a male partner or former partner. Nearly half of all female murder victims are killed by a partner or ex-partner.


90% of domestic violence is seen or heard by children.
