What can I say about Newcastle Women's Aid? Lots really, I was a frightened, isolated person in a dark place and they were that warm voice on the end of a phone on my first tearful call to them. They gave me hope, and it felt like they had hold of my hand, until I felt able to let go. They took me on my journey, until I reached a place where I felt I could cope and think more clearly. They gave me, knowledge, clarity, guidance, facts, courage and support.
I have valued every second of my support, from the first telephone call to 1 to 1 appointments and group sessions. It has not been easy and I have tripped many times BUT not fallen as you have helped to pick me up and carry on.
I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to get help from Newcastle Womens Aid, if they need it.
