Covid 19 has brought difficulties for all of us. Women living through lockdown need a safe place to escape to where they can live free from violence and abuse. During the pandemic WAITS has seen an increase in women to our charity in need of safe and confidential accommodation. Women made homeless as an alternative to living in fear and danger.
Help women like this young women who reached out to WAITS though our website to let us know what was happening to her. It took a few days for her to build up her confidence to tell us her fear of being forced into marriage and the financial abuse she suffered by her parents. Concerned, we called the police who removed her to safety. We would have liked to have supported her on her recovery journey, but we had a lack of bed spaces, so we found her somewhere else to go.
