Lifeline for families fleeing abuse
Life can be extremely tough for victims of domestic abuse, especially when children are involved. When Sophie, teenage mum to two-year-old Joshua, was referred to one of our children's centres by social services, she was in a very dark place. Her relationship with Joshua's dad was mentally and psychologically abusive and he was often aggressive. Our work set about turning Sophie and Joshua's lives around. Following the Triple R programme, Sophie is now much more confident and is preparing to volunteer with Spurgeons.
