Restored - Ending Violence Against Women


Welcome to the Restored website. Restored is an international Christian alliance working to transform relationships and end violence against women. If you are new to the website then do sign up to receive our regular prayer e-mail.

The website aims to raise awareness of the extent of violence against women worldwide, and what we can all do to end it. Central to this is a vision of transformed relationships between men and women.

Restored is a membership-based alliance. If your church or organisation would like to join Restored than please find out more in the Get Involved area.

We hope that you find the website to be informative and challenging. More than that, we hope you will want to take action yourself to make a difference. To find out more take a look at our Get Involved.

Welcome to Restored.

The Crown Club

'I will give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, and the oil of gladness instead of a spirit of despair,' Isaiah 61:v3

We invite you to become a founder partner of The Crown Club and help end violence against women.

At least 1 in 3 women across the world has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime.  

Restored aims to end violence against women, to give them a ‘crown of beauty instead of ashes’.

Our vision is to see communities based on restored relationships in which women live free from violence and the fear of violence from men. We believe that Christian churches have huge potential to help prevent violence against women and girls, but also need to change their own attitudes and practice. Our focus is on the prevention of domestic and sexual violence, including the mobilisation of churches and men to address these issues.

Do you share our passion for making violence against women a thing of the past?

Then we’d like to invite you to become a founder member of The Crown Club by making a regular monthly gift. See more here
