damage that domestic violence can inflict on their lives.


We are delighted that we have merged with HALT. We are still known as Leeds Women’s Aid, but we are now using a working name of Leeds Women’s Aid incorporating HALT”.

Please consider sponsoring Doreen for her Sober November in aid of Leeds Women’s Aid inc HALT. Please see a message from Doreen:


“I’m giving up alcohol for 30 days to raise money for Leeds Women’s Aid inc HALT.  Starting 1st November 00:00 and ending on 30th November 23:59. I’ll still be going out for drinks and will not change my routine at all so that it’s actually a challenge!

Leeds Women’s Aid inc HALT is a local charity providing services to women and families that have been affected by domestic violence. They offer women temporary safe housing escaping domestic violence, they help run a domestic violence helpline, offer group support for women and also support women in re-housing and finding permanent accommodation

So what will your money do?


  • £10 can provide children’s and baby clothing
  • £25 provide an emergency food box for the women when they arrive at the refuge
  • £50 can provide a specialist women’s support worker for a day

All the money raised will be going directly to the charity and I will personally be donating my tips during the month to Leeds Women’s Aid inc HALT as well!
