Recommendations for women's charity

7 replies

I want to get someone a charity gift for Christmas. Can anyone recommend a charity (or a gift within a larger charity) that particularly works with women, either in the UK or internationally?

I was looking at Refuge, but I specifically want to support a charity that offers support to women based on sex, not gender, and I couldn't find out from their website what their policy on transwomen in domestic violence shelters is.

Any suggestions, please?

I'm also looking for more.

Southall Black Sisters - a fantastic organisation.

Thanks. There's some great charities out there. I think I will go with Nia for Christmas because it's local to us and works in our borough. But there's some brilliant other causes to consider for the future.
