A life of childhood trauma and sexual abuse resulted in an unhealthy domestically violent relationship. Holly was struggling with her mental health, suffering from anxiety and depression she was struggling to cope whilst looking after her daughter. She had stopped looking after herself, was not eating well and her physical health was deteriorating.
We worked alongside her GP, Let’s Talk Wellbeing, Crisis Team, UAVA and the Police to try and support her. She was referred to our Emotional and Wellbeing Worker who worked with her to develop a timetable/daily schedule and positive activities to improve her confidence, get her involved in new things and get out of the house.
When Holly felt ready, we helped her apply for housing out of the area and thanks to kind donations we were able to pay her rent in advance and for a removal company to help her start her new life.
