Give and Make Up

Give and Make Up

Escentual is proud to support Give and Make Up and Welsh Women's Aid.

What is Give and Make Up?

Each week two women in the United Kingdom are murdered by a partner or ex-partner. One woman in four experiences domestic violence in their lifetime.

Refuge and Women's Aid projects protect the lives of thousands of women and children every day.

Give and Make Up is a non-profit initiative whose sole purpose is to get everyday essentials into the hands of these women and children who need them the most.

Within Wales, Give and Make Up supports Welsh Women's Aid - who distribute the products across the whole of Wales.

About Welsh Women's Aid

Welsh Women's Aid (WWA) was founded in 1978 to campaign and lobby for improvements in public policy and government legislation in relation to women and children experiencing domestic abuse in Wales.

WWA is the national umbrella organisation for thirty one Women's Aid and former Women's Aid groups who provide specifically commissioned domestic abuse services within local communities across Wales. The Women's Aid Movement in Wales delivers a combined total of 242 refuge bed spaces, and in excess of 300 floating support bed spaces and a variety of community based non housing related domestic abuse services across Wales.

How you can help?

You can help Give and Make Up, by donating your unwanted make-up, toiletries and baby products to Escentual, who will in turn pass them onto Welsh Women's Aid to support women across the whole of Wales.

These products will go directly to women who have experience domestic abuse and are living in refuges, and will help them gain a bit of normality back in their life, and help them feel better about themselves.
