Willow became homeless when she attempted to take her own life at the age of 18, leading to her second step-father throwing her out of her family home.


From the age of 7 Willow suffered sexual, physical and mental abuse from two step fathers and at 18 she had no home and no support.

Luckily we were there to be her safety net when everyone else had given up.

Your donation could help a young person like Willow, to find a stable home of their own and to learn new skills, to give them the self-confidence they will need to build healthy relationships with people around them.

Will you donate to be a young persons safety net this winter?
