Our Funders

Thank you to our wonderful funders who support our work with grants and donations. We don’t receive any money from the Government and without the support of these incredible organisations (and the support of the public too of course) we wouldn’t be able to continue to help people and animals escape from domestic abuse.

    The Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust was set up in 1982 by philanthropist and animal lover Mrs Jean Sainsbury. Since the first donations were made in 1983. JSAWT has given over £12 million to animal welfare charities working both in the UK and abroad.
