This week, we’d like to help a single mum from the North of England who fled domestic violence with her 2 year old twins and 6 month old baby.
Mandy’s partner was violent, so she left to protect herself and her children.
They were officially homeless for just over 7 weeks...the shelter they were offered wasn’t suitable for 3 young children, but luckily a friend and her mum took them all in and gave them somewhere safe to stay (the friend’s elderly mum gave up her bedroom, so Mandy and the 3 children could move in for a short time).
When they were housed, the police allowed Mandy back into her old house to quickly grab a few essentials, but she hasn’t been able to go back since.
Mandy and the children are safe now, but she lives in constant fear of her ex finding them and has been struggling with anxiety and PTSD . She is somehow managing to care for 3 children under 3 while working part-time to try to support herself, but it is taking its toll on her and she needs help.
She has been through so much, and we would love to do something kind for her and the children.
