Success story 1: Sarah Jane
I left home at 16 years old after difficulties with my parents. My parents divorced and my mother moved in with her new partner that I did not get on with. He would make inappropriate advances towards me to the point that I felt unsafe within our home. I spoke with my mother about the issues that I was experiencing and at the time she choose her partner over me which I could not believe. This led to a significant break down in our relationship. I then spoke with a counsellor at college who put me in contact with Social Services, and they sourced for me accommodation through Youth Inspire. I have not looked back since and feel valued and supported in making positive choices and living independently.
