Save our Refuges

Please help us in our campaign to save our refuge provision. 

West Sussex County Council are proposing to cut 100% of funding for supported housing. This would have a devastating impact on our refuge provision and put the lives of women and children at risk.

Please sign the petition by clicking on our logo below asking the leader of West Sussex County Council to protect our refuge provision.

The Freedom Programme will be running in Worthing, Bognor Regis, Horsham and Crawley from September. Please call 0330 333 7416 for more information
