Liz’s story

Agencies involved: Probation, Fry Housing Trust, Springboard and SureStart

Liz and her four children were referred to Springboard after she moved into a women’s refuge in order to leave a home situation involving domestic violence perpetrated by Liz’s brother. 

Liz moved into rented accommodation with her children as she started with Springboard. She felt this gave her a fresh start, with the chance to move away from a damaging social circle of friends that were using her for her money and to stay with her.

After she moved away, Liz found that life was less stressful; she could manage her money better and spend more quality time with her children. Liz worked with Springboard and attended both one on one and group sessions at her local SureStart centre.

Both she and her children enjoyed these sessions, and Liz loved being able to watch her children play and see how this benefited their lives. With Springboard, Liz developed a plan for her future, including how she could fulfil her desire to work with other women who have been victims of domestic violence.

She has now applied for a voluntary position at Coventry Refuge Centre for Women and her children have settled into school and nursery.
