Our Mission

Our mission is to support and empower women and children who are experiencing domestic abuse, and to work towards eliminating society structures which give rise to, and tolerate domestic abuse.
I get up in the morning and the sun is shining and I just love it. I love that I can cycle and go wherever I want. I can talk to people, I can talk to other mothers and there’s nothing stopping me.”
