Impact March 2020

Our mission is to create a just society that has the utmost respect for all human life from fertilisation. We live this out by providing positive alternatives to abortion through support for women and families and education for young people. Thanks for being a part of this.

Welcome to our impact page. Here you can discover how Life is making a difference by providing positive alternatives to abortion.

Pregnancy tests

Every month we support women as they face the possibility that they might be pregnant. By offering free pregnancy tests, we are accompanying women from the very first moment of their pregnancy journey. We saw a big increase in pregnancy test requests as the COVID-19 lockdown began.

New* clients supported

We support women, children and families through our counselling and skilled listening service, supported housing and practical support. In March 2020, here's how many clients we've helped. *housing clients may not be new
