    Hear From Our Volunteers

    “I firmly believe that spreading awareness about domestic abuse is vitally important. I want as many people as possible to learn about Leeway and its wonderful services, so they know that they are not alone and help is available, should they need it. I’d like to think that there is a tiny drop of my own contribution in the big battle with ending domestic abuse.”

    Hear From Our Volunteers

    “I had to flee from domestic violence with my children so I have some insight into the life of other woman and children who live in the refuge. I volunteer with Leeway because I wanted to give something back. I felt welcomed into Leeway from day one and I can honestly say I have got more back than I have ever given. Seeing the pleasure on children's faces at play groups and seeing mothers being able to enjoy family life again in a safe place is priceless. I feel proud to be part of that and to be part of the Leeway family.”
