Global Lifeline runs a refuge in the West Midlands for homeless and vulnerable women, particularly those who have been victims of domestic abuse. It anticipates helping around 25 women at Halfrida House this year. The aim of the refuge is to provide a safe haven, and whilst there, to transform the lives of the women and children who stay. Staff and volunteers work with the women to help them progress to a new life, settled independently in their own homes away from the abusive environment.
The Foundation gave a grant of £8,000 in October 2015 to support the general running costs of the refuge.
