Help us give hundreds like Agnes back their dignity and freedom

I was trapped, they had my passport, I couldn’t go out of the house, I was so afraid; every day made to sleep next to the bin, thrown scraps of food from the table. He would threaten to hurt my children if I did not do what he wanted; I had to get out when the abuse turned physical.

One night, when he was asleep from alcohol. I ran for my life, the police helped me find City Hearts. When I arrived at the City hearts safe house I had nothing, I was alone. 

Then I saw my room laid out with so many beautiful things, I felt I was worth something again. I grabbed a fresh towel and shampoo and had a warm shower for the first time in 7 years. I felt clean, safe and knew my life had changed now forever.

Now I am not alone, I have hope.

Background

For over 15 years we have supported some of society’s most vulnerable and exploited people. Often, the men and women we support arrive with nothing but the clothes on their back. We want them to feel cared for from the moment they arrive, whether it’s providing essentials such as toothbrushes and towels, or a pair of comfy slippers and some luxury chocolate, it’s the little things that can make someone feel valued. 

And when our clients are ready to move into their new home, which for many is a major step in their journey to independence, we want to provide the items which make a house a home, such as lamps, pictures and rugs.  

This is where the Restoration Hub comes in. It’s a physical space where we can store donations and quickly distribute care packs to our clients.

Help us restore the dignity of every person we support as they begin their journey to recovery.
