Did you know that domestic abuse has surged in the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic?
MAY 2020, UK – With a surge in demand for the National Domestic Abuse Helpline during lockdown. mindfulness lifestyle brand Scentered® have partnered with Refuge, who run this Helpline and are a charity providing confidential, specialist, support to women and children experiencing domestic abuse, to raise awareness of this crisis and offer a donation through sales of their 100% natural Aromatherapy SLEEP WELL set.
In 1971, Refuge created the world’s first safe house for women & children and the charity has now become the country’s largest single provider of specialist domestic abuse services. Refuge support over 6,500 women and children on any given day but since Covid- 19 they have received an average 50% increase in demand for the National Domestic Abuse Helpline, which refuge runs.

Scentered® is a mindfulness lifestyle brand that has created a unique Ritual, Wellbeing teaching people how to use the power or our sense of smell as a tool to direct our during this difficult time, Lara Morgan, Founder of Scentered and her team were extremely keen to support the wider community and the vital work of Refuge was one they all wanted to support and raise awareness of.
To support Refuge, Scentered® have compiled a supportive package offer for the I want to SLEEP WELL Gift Set which includes their award winning 100% natural SLEEP WELL Wellbeing Ritual Aromatherapy balm & SLEEP WELL Aromatherapy candle to bring comfort and wellbeing to people across the UK. For every Gift set sold, Scentered® will be donating £9.00 via the Work For Good donation platform to help Refuge. (A 5% service fee goes to intermediaries which is annoying and unavoidable).
Let’s raise awareness and support the community around us.
“The radio has been a constant comfort in my life. Recently though I have been reminded through radio listening that during lock-down there are urgent needs for the support of domestic abuse victims, ideally before tragedy happens... the lifeline of a phone number can change and indeed save lives. With a stable home life today I am aware, having had a challenging experience as a child of the damage that an abusive homelife can be like – having had to call the police to have my father taken away, I know what it is like to be a child trapped in an impossible situation. I always feel that there are others like me, today grateful and willing to give a little to others less lucky, hence having heard the need for supporting funds I have done what I can do and enlisted a wickedly talented group of women leaders to help me help others. We have chosen to support Refuge and I hope to reach a goal of selling 3000 or more kits to reach a target of £24,700 income for Refuge from the profit we could make.” - Lara Morgan, Scentered Founder, mother of three, business women and entrepreneur.
