The letter below was written by a client of our Staying Home Leaving Violence service, to thank her caseworker:
“I contacted Staying Home Leaving Violence after experiencing many counts of domestic violence with my ex-partner over 1 year ago. [My caseworker from Staying Home Leaving Violence Service] never left my side, she has helped and supported through it all.
“She assisted me with many things such as: financial aid, security, food, court attendance, legal advice and sometimes even just a shoulder to cry on.
She was my angel in disguise and I don’t know how I could have managed without her support and guidance, she has truly showed me how to be strong and not feel alone, that there is also help out there and I don’t have to do it alone. I was able to get back on my feet and restart my life for the better. I was able to become a better mother and provide my daughter a safer environment to live in.
“I now believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel and I no longer have to live in fear, abuse and control.”
