We supported Liam in our safehouse after the family had fled from violence at home. Liam barely spoke to anyone. Liam had been told by his stepdad if he told secrets he would get into trouble.

Helen met with Liam each week and built up a trusting relationship. Liam especially loved the instruments in the children's log cabin, the safe space in refuge designated for children to play and learn.

When Liam left refuge a few months later, he was like a different child – bubbly, confident and a chatterbox! Liam was able to recognise people that he could trust and share with, the family were happy, safe and settled in their new home and Liam sent us a card to say thankyou!
