Story

My name is Gabriella. I am a Child Support Worker for children living in a Women's Refuge in Hertfordshire as a result of domestic abuse.

We work primarily with children that are deemed to be high risk, which means they are at significant risk of harm and abuse. These children will have experienced chaotic lifestyles, fearing for their own and their families lives, feeling powerless and often enduring physical and emotional abuse, on a daily basis. Children often coming to refuges are displaying as withdrawn, extremely challenging behaviours, anxiety, depression, self-harming and bed-wetting.

Coming into refuge is often a new start for these children, and an opportunity to live free of fear and have the opportunity to experience a childhood free from violence and abuse. I want to be able to give these children the best possible experience living in refuge, positive memories and a safe space for them to have fun, learn and explore, as every child should have the right to.

We are currently in the process of starting to renovate our playroom but as funding has been cut for children living in refuge in September 2017, this is proving an impossible task. Therefore, I am currently fundraising for new toys and equipment such as a built-in kitchen and chalkboard, as well as redecorating the space to make it as welcoming as it can be.

Myself and the children would be so appreciative of any donation, no matter how big or small.
