Impact May 2019

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.

Clients supported

We support women, children and families through our counselling and skilled listening service, supported housing and practical support. In May 2019, here's how many clients we've helped.

Life Matters® outreach


This academic year we have spoken to 21,491 students in 119 schools on topics such as abortion, euthanasia, life before birth and reproductive technologies.


As we approach the end of the third year in our five-year turnaround plan, here is a brief report that expands on:

  • Our finances have successfully been turned around
  • Our once-failing retail chain is set for £130k profit with only half the outlets
  • As market leaders, we are serving more clients than ever before (71 a day)
  • A new invigorated board and motivated workforce in place to guide the charity

This turnaround plan is allowing us to have an ever greater impact. We hope you’re as excited about this as we are!

Turnaround report: year three
