Giving Back…

In 2014 I was declared legally homeless. In 2016 I was widowed by suicide.  The previous four years were spent living with my partner’s mental illness and alcoholism. In the last 13 years I have been a single parent twice over. My work is my life and my life is my work therefore the charities that are close to my heart reflect this. If you wish to support please follow these links and find out more. The act of looking and educating yourself on these issues is often just as important as financial aid.

{If you are currently looking for help the first step is to tell someone. Tell someone in an independent charity that is not government run. They will be most able to support you from an unbiased and emotive perspective. THANK YOU!}
