Weʼre raising £1,000 to To help me to afford a place of my own and escape domestic abuse.
- 27 days to go
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My name is Jodi and I am a victim of domestic violence.
I currently live with the abusers (parents) and although I do receive support from the Women Centre, I am still stuck in this horrible situation.
The police got involved last December but recently closed the case as no further action was going to be taken.
I am out of work at the moment and trying my very hardest to get a job, it's so hard especially now that I have lost so much confidence and I have depression, anxiety and PTSD.
I would have waited until I got a job to save up to move out but it's just getting worse. I could go to a refuge but they do not accept pets and I do not want to be apart from my dog - Riley (in the picture with me). He is the only reason why I still keep going.
I didn't want to ask for help, I was too ashamed but I feel like this is my last resort.
I would be very appreciative of any donations and I can promise you that it will go towards the first few months rent renting a flat and furniture etc...
I literally do not know what else to do and because of my anxiety, I am frightened of sleeping on the streets etc...
Thank you so much.
