Our Funders

Winner, the Preston Road Women’s Centre relies on the generous support of a variety of funders to continue to deliver our high quality services to women and children in Hull. We are proud to have the confidence of both local and national funders.

Some of the organisations that support us include:

Hull City Council

We hold a contract with Hull City Council who commission us to deliver support to women experiencing and escaping domestic violence and abuse. We have successfully held this contract since 2009

BIG Lottery Fund (BLF)

BLF has funded our Volunteering programme since 2010 and will continue to fund it until January 2020. We work with women to support them to volunteer in the centre and in other organisations so that they can build confidence and skills to become ready for paid work. BLF is also the anchor funder for our new purpose-built women’s centre which is under construction and will be completed on 17th August 2018. An award of £997 910 from the Reaching Communities Capital Programme has made the new centre possible, complemented by our own local fundraising and contributions from other funders.

Children in Need


Children in Need funds one of our Nursery workers to work with children affected by domestic violence and abuse. It also funds our young women’s project, helping young women get involved in their community, learn new skills and confidence and aim high in life.



Lloyds Bank Foundation

The Lloyds Bank Foundation funds one of our domestic violence and abuse workers who support women experiencing and escaping abuse


Social and Sustainable Capital (SASC)

SASC have supported our property work with capital funding to expand our portfolio and create more safe homes for women and children fleeing violence and abuse
