“If it wasn’t for LDVS I would not have got out of the situation. LDVS helped me recognise the signs to look out for in dealing with domestic abuse. They helped me to recognise my self-worth and gain self respect”

Zaima, Woodhouse

“I am grateful for workers like my worker. Even the telephone support worked. It gave me confidence to ring the police against my ex-wife. I would never have done this before as she used to say I am a big man and no one would believe me”

Anton, Chapeltown
