Looking back now I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t had the help and support from Newcastle Women’s Aid. I’ve changed so much and I like that.


I have sorted a lot of things out for myself where as before I was frightened to do things on my own. I got my oldest child into nursery, I registered us with a doctor and a dentist, I’ve been making new foods for us to try which is all down to my confidence growing and learning new skills every day.


I think I have learned not to be so hard on myself and my children have come on leaps and bounds. I can see their confidence has also grown and they now shine and that reflects back on me and makes me feel so proud so I know that I have done the right thing.


My support has helped me to feel like I can now open up about things and talk and not have to keep them all bottled up.
