Our Story
Who We Are

In 2013, a playgroup for young mums was established. In this group, 8 women were experiencing domestic violence abuse and had no where to turn. They were also struggling to access and navigate the existing services. They required emotional support and practical advice. Three volunteers supported these women and their children. This was the start of our journey.
