How to donate to Women's Aid East and Midlothian

Women's Aid East and Midlothian receives funding from The Scottish Government and Midlothian Council. We are also supported by many local organisations including schools, business’s and churches who make generous donations throughout the year. If you would like to make a donation we often seek the following to support the work we do:

  • Phone sim cards / old mobiles to ensure women can contact emergency services
  • Clothing, especially maternity wear
  • Children’s equipment, such as buggies, prams, cots etc in good order.
  • Gift vouchers for supermarkets/ department stores to provide families with the essentials
  • Cash – this is used for providing outings and group activities for either women or families to provide time and space to explore their current situation.

If you want to make a cash donation you can specify where you would like the money to go and will ensure it goes there. As a small organisation we really do make a difference to people lives with the generous giving from interested individuals and organisations. If you would like to discuss further investment in our services you can call Sue Farmer the business manager to find out more. A big thank you to all those who regularly support our work and those who just drop by the door and hand in what ever they have. We can’t tell you who gets what (so we protect our women) but we can tell you it goes a long way
