Beauty For Ashes Refuges was formed in response to the number of women fleeing domestic abuse, who are unable to access refuge due to their immigration status. Women are being forced into impossible choices: continued abuse, destitution, further physical or emotional harm or returning to a country where they have no roots and will be at risk of further harm.
Having worked in refuge provision, the founder was shocked by the number of women and children being turned away from refuge due to their immigration status and decided to do something about it. Our Christian faith and our belief that we are all made in the image of God underpins everything we do. We work with survivors regardless of their religious beliefs, tailoring our support to every individual.
The first Green Pastures house is pending.
We would like to see all women with No Recourse to Public Funds who are fleeing domestic abuse able to access safe refuge accommodation, quickly and easily.
