With the support of St Giles, Sarah is working on becoming financially independent and is looking at housing options. Before coming to St Giles, Sarah’s health suffered where she missed medical appointments as she lacked the confidence of attending on her own. She is now attending hospital receiving the medical care she needs.
Although Sarah is currently experiencing domestic violence within her relationship, her caseworker discusses how Sarah feels and explores ways to keep herself safe, working on herself and her needs.
‘It is the little things that St Giles has helped me with: going out for a coffee with my caseworker has made me feel like a human being again. They bought me a diary and pen so I could keep up with appointments and I have used it to start writing poetry again. I am looking forward to coming to the women’s groups to meet other people.’
