Sally's Story

“My biggest issue with relationships was that I struggled to maintain my identity. I became so consumed by being everything and doing everything for my man that I expected little in return and received little.  Because I didn’t want to be demanding I wanted to be ‘chill.’ Clearly, that never worked for me.”

Alyce's Story

"And suddenly there I was. A young mother with two children under 3, in a completely foreign country, having to find my feet. Yes, the excitement of something new and interesting was there, but when your husband begins work that very afternoon to start getting all the paperwork in… well, in hindsight, that first year was more of a shock to my system than I realised at the time. “

Fenella's Story

"By 22 I was injecting heroin every day and by 28 I thought there was no way out. I was so far removed from the girl before all the drugs. The innocent 11-year-old girl who didn't know how to deal with emotions or feelings, and didn't know how to ask for help."
