Gillian’s story

Shortly after Gillian and her three children left an abusive home, she lost her job and for the first time in her life had to rely on support services to get by. “It had a huge impact on me. The hardest thing was having to ask for help,” she says. “It was huge for me to realise that there was so much help out there for me. I was blown away, especially here.”

Our counsellors have helped Gillian navigate a “system” she’d never experienced. Now she’s rediscovering the strong, independent woman she knows she can be. “With the Salvos, just knowing that they’re there for me is the biggest thing,” she says. “Just the knowing I’ve got that support makes such a difference.”
