Why We Care
The impact of traumatic Experiences
Millions of victims and survivors of domestic abuse and modern slavery are settling for less in life due to the impact of their traumatic experiences. This affects their cognitive development, silenced their voices, destroys their self-confidence and self-esteem, kills their dreams in life, take away their independence and are left defenseless, paralysed with limiting beliefs, fear, anxiety and depression.
Untold Damage of COVID-19 in our Communities
With the emergence of Covid-19 and the lockdown, this target group, especially those of Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds are disproportionately affected. This is due to socio-economic and political factors like immigration, unemployment, systemic barriers, mental health, domestic abuse, homelessness, destitution, and poor integration, social and cultural exclusion. With the dire need to prevent abuse and mental health, we are using our services to change lives and change our communities.
