“We were delighted to welcome HRH The Princess Royal.  Her visit offered us an excellent platform to showcase our valuable work with survivors of domestic violence and abuse to an individual who so tirelessly supports charitable ventures.

We were also pleased that she met some of our service users, who continue to inspire us with their courage and determination every day. We’d like to thank her very much for visiting us and supporting our work.”

It takes tremendous courage for survivors to come forward and talk about their experiences and our dedicated team are able to offer support towards healing and recovery.”
