Story

my name is Katie Walker, i am 32 years old and i am a domestic violence survivor.. i was beaten so bad by my ex partner every bone in my face was broken and i spend 3 months having reconstructive surgery. Funny thing is i don't remember feeling any pain from the broken bones or the surgery , because the pain came after ... the pain came when i shut myself off from the world, the pain came when i lost all my confidence, when i felt worthless and felt like i had no reason to carry on... it took me years but somehow i found the strength to get through this dark time in my life.. i knew that i now needed to help the other woman who need support.

With the help from the princes trust i have now gone on to open a salon in Liverpool, they helped me grow my confidence and when i felt strong enough i finally found the courage inside to share my story to raise awareness to help others escape and show them there is light at the end of the tunnel...

i have now gone on to become a young ambassador for the prince trust, win Liverpool best beauty professional and just this week win a Pride of Britain award for sharing my story and helping other by giving free pamper days in my salon to help build their confidence!

this has now given me the platform i need to set up my own charity to help the thousands of others that need help and the government funding being next none its left to us to help these woman. Ive been fundraising myself but every help is needed

with the support from the prince trust i have now developed a plan and to make this happen but it will cost £71,000. i am currently renovating 2 floors into a domestic abuse centre so woman feel safe coming in, here we can hold a confidence boosting course which will include relaxation therapy scar removal and pampering, counselling, work experience, vouchers for interview clothes, self defence classes, training and much more ..

i also believe frot my own experience just getting together and talking to others who have been though a similar experience helps more than anything! these men and woman have done the hardest thing ever and that's escape, but sometimes escaping means you are left with nothing including self worth. but i really need funding and support to make this happen. Your donation can help me rebuild these brave womans lives, help get them back into society, work and stop them returning to their abusers... lets show them they are not alone.

2 woman a week are killed through domestic violence, last year there was 1.7 million reports of domestic violence in England and Wales! now is the time we need to make a change!!! if anyone would like to help support me please get in touch on katiecares.notalone@hotmail.com or 01515304679

thank you for taking the time to read my story xx
