A family in need
Stella came to Save the Family in January 2013 after staying at two Refuges in Liverpool and Chester. She was forced to leave her home when the police were called to the house after a neighbour raised concerns about the family’s safety. Social services were called out and gave Stella an ultimatum of leaving there and then with her children, or risk having the children removed.
“It was horrendous, I literally had to pack my bags and leave the house, all my possessions and everything.” More
