Have a look at some of the success stories below, that have been kindly contributed by the people we work with.

A Survivor’s Story
“I’m now working voluntarily with women who have been/are victims of domestic abuse, as I feel I want to give back to the services and wonderful people who supported and held me through my own experiences”.
“You have to point yourself in the right direction and keep walking. I was scared about giving up but the service showed me I’m not the only one and it can be done”.
“I look after myself, my depression is under control, my anxiety is under control, I have a future, my kids have a future, I’m able to speak up for myself”.
A Young Person’s Story
