Margaret’s story

"I suffered years of abuse from my partner, but, eventually in October 2011, I called the police, and was assessed as high risk and referred to MARAC. I was then supported by the IDVA service, who helped me organise new locks, supported me at court, and when a further incident happened, I felt confident to ring the police again. My ex was still trying to control me, although he now had a new partner...

I've now completely turned my life around, I've got a job I love, and I've even volunteered to help other women, after I 'came out the other side'. I'm also now doing a college course to be a teaching assistant! Everything is so much better now..I just hope I can help other women to see if they can do it too. It is possible to come out the other side."
