Gemma (who we all call Gems) has been with the WAITS charity for the past six months sprinkling her gentle magic, giving sound advice and assuring the women that cross her path that “together we can do it”.

Gemma states in no uncertain terms that; “All women need to know that domestic abuse – be it physical, sexual, financial, emotional happens in every street and in every community. The longer I work in this environment the more I realize that we must all support the change we wish to see”.

This was a preliminary to an impassioned plea to include a mention of her visit to the Birmingham City Council Market place where she was able to speak to, and engage with, 101 elected council members to secure WAITS as an organisation on their advisory radar.

The event was a great opportunity to inform the city Councillors, about the female-centered services available to those needing help and assistance.

This type of proactive local based activity is essential to the work of WAITS. Let’s spread the word. Domestic violence never discriminates. It happens to pilots, homemakers, teachers, lawyers, doctors, – even the barista at the counter making your next cup of coffee.

Let’s ensure that every woman knows that she is not alone.
