How does mobile phone recycling help Refuge?
Our mobile phone scheme really does make a difference: since 2005 the scheme has raised over £16,000!
This amount of money could pay for more than 90 children to receive a programme of 12 sessions of counselling, helping them to overcome the trauma of witnessing or experiencing abuse.
