Impact October 2022

Life is a UK charity that provides (1) support services for anyone facing unplanned pregnancy or pregnancy loss, and (2) education about human dignity. Thanks for being a part of this.

Welcome to our impact page. Here you can discover how your support for Life is making a difference this year.

Pregnancy tests requested


Imagine having a friend who's with you from day one. Every month we help women as they face the possibility that they might be pregnant. By offering free pregnancy tests, we're accompanying women from the very first moment of their pregnancy journey. In October, 43 women asked us for a free pregnancy test every day.

People asking for counselling


We support women, children, and families through our counselling and skilled listening service. This service gives them a place of safety - someone to listen to them. This October, 724 people used this service.

Mums and babies housed


We house mums and their babies who would otherwise be homeless, unsupported, or at risk. We can be a place of safety and sanctuary for them. In October, we housed 242 mums and their babies and have welcomed eight new residents since September.

Mums and babies moving on


Whenever a mum and baby move out of our Houses to independent living, that's a success story. In October, eight mums and babies moved out of our Houses.
