How your money can help

£10 helps provide practical and emotional support to local people learning to survive the harm of domestic abuse.

£25 pays for a survivor to have a one-hour counselling session to help overcome the trauma of their experience.

£50 helps pay towards educating young people to recognise healthy and unhealthy relationships to prevent abuse now and in the future.

£100 helps pay towards a recovery group for women survivors, empowering them to live a positive, abuse free life.

Others ways to help us

Make a larger donation

Larger donations have a big impact on our service.  It means you can support a specific project that will help adults or children in Guildford and Waverley.  Alternatively, you may wish your donation to go towards the day to day core costs that are vital to the running of our service. If you prefer, we can suggest how your money will make the most difference to supporting survivors of domestic abuse.

We will commit to providing you with updates on how your money is spent and the positive impact of your donation. We offer recognition on our website and/or social media. If you’d prefer to remain anonymous that’s fine too.

Fundraise

Can you help us raise funds to support local people affected by domestic abuse?

There are many ways that you can raise funds for our service and help support survivors of domestic abuse. You can take part in one of our community events or create your own as an individual, group or workplace.

Coffee mornings, 5k runs, a quiz or auction. We have tons of suggestions in our downloadable community fundraising pack. We’d love to hear your ideas so get in touch and let us know how you or your organisation can fundraise for South West Surrey Domestic Abuse Outreach Service.

Email us at hello@swsda.org.uk to get involved.

Volunteer

Do you have a few hours a week or more to spare? Can you give your time to support our service?

Our volunteers are an incredible team who give up their time to support our service. Their roles vary enormously and include a graphic designer, office administrators, bid writers and a team who support survivors at peer and support groups.

You may want to build on existing skills and experience, meet new people, boost your confidence or do something rewarding in the local community.  Whatever your motivation for volunteering, there may be a role for you.

We have a number of roles available, in particular, Community Re-engagement Volunteers (0.5 days – 2 days a week) to help support survivors to build their confidence and self-esteem and act as their ‘companion’ when taking part in everyday community-based activities.
