Latest News This week only, donations to Hestia are doubled This week only, donations to Hestia are doubled From midday Tuesday 8 June to midday Tuesday 15 June, donations to Hestia are automatically doubled through the Big Give. Your donations will help us to provide family activities and day trips for children who have been living in our domestic abuse refuges during lockdown, helping to improve their mental health and well-being. Double my donation now Why your donations are needed While lockdown restrictions have been challenging for all of us, for children who have experienced domestic abuse, it’s been devastating. When fleeing domestic abuse, families leave behind everything: their home, school, friends, and personal belongings. During Covid-19, joining new schools and nurseries has been delayed, further limiting the education, interaction and stimulation of children at our refuges. 89% of our Children & Family Workers told us they believe the pandemic has had a negative impact on the mental health of the children they work with. As we return to a sense of normality, we must not forget women and children living in refuges. Their personal lockdown is still ongoing. Where will your donations go? Hestia’s Big Give Campaign aims to raise £24,000 to support the mental health and wellbeing of children in our refuges, so they can enjoy dedicated family activities and day trips, from sports days and picnics in the park, to trips to the beach.
