Support Us

Make a difference


Volunteer for WWiN and help support the work we do with women and children across Wearside.  We have a range of volunteering opportunities - our volunteers are an important part of our team.  For more information contact


Hold a fund-raising event for WWiN and raise money to help support the work we do for women and children across Wearside.  From arts and crafts, bathtubs full of beans to 'zzzzzz' sponsored pyjama days.  Your donations make an enormous difference to women and children - thank you.  For more information contact

You can fundraise for WWiN when you shop with Amazon.  Simply shop at AmazonSmile or with AmazonSmile ON in the Amazon Shopping app, and AmazonSmile donates to Wearside Women In Need at no extra cost to you.

We are currently running a crowd funder campaign which will run over Christmas. The fundraising campaign is to buy a minibus so that we can take the families we support on trips, help women move into new properties and support the running of WWiN drop-in events.


We know how difficult these times are for everyone but if you would normally donate for Christmas please consider donating to our minibus crowd funder to enable us to support our women and children all through the year. A £2 donation from everyone who supports WWiN would be a great contribution and would go a long way!  You can find more information here


Every penny counts and we couldn't do it without you! Thank you to everyone in our community for your continued support of WWiN.

Donate directly to WWiN - make a one-off donation via Head Office, Just Giving or PayPal.  To set up a regular payment via Direct Debit, contact our Head Office or set up via Just Giving. 


WWiN give mobile phones to the women we support.  Often their own phones have been damaged by perpetrators in the belief it destroys evidence (it doesn’t) or they have been retained by police for evidence.  Occasionally women use the mobiles we give out as a safety planning handset, it’s kept to support women and children exiting abusive relationships as safe as possible.  The phones we give out are a lifeline for these women and children in giving them the ability to call for emergency services when needed, to maintain their support networks and to continue to speak to their support workers.  Mobile phones are taken for granted in today’s society, let’s ensure the women we support have a voice.  We accept new and used mobile handsets and chargers that are in perfect working condition.


Again, thank you, your donations make an enormous difference to the women and children we support.


Come along to one of our events, organise your own event, have fun and raise money for WWiN at the same time!
