Trish accessed HOWSS support and has generously shared her story. Watch and listen below.


“Hi, I’m Trish.

I left a DV relationship in March two years ago, and had to leave the place that I was staying, had to re-home my animals, found myself pretty much in a circumstance I’d never thought I’d be in at this age.

My mental health was not good.

My physical health was not good.

I’d lost a lot of weight due to stress.

Without you guys, I probably wouldn’t be here.

The conversations that we had made me sort of feel that, alright, there is some light at the end of the tunnel.

If you are not in safe and secure housing, you can’t flourish as a person.

You’ve got to have somewhere to call home, that’s where your base is.

Do you need housing support?
