How this cause brings people in the community together

Each individual/family will be supported to move on to happier, healthier lives following abuse. Mentors will help them to talk through their experience, lose any feelings of shame or guilt, to rebuild their self-worth and value their own decision making. For volunteers with their own experience of domestic abuse, they will turn a negative aspect of their life into a positive, helping others.
