“I have worked closely with Glow staff Cassie and Sarah for a number of years.
“The service is absolutely brilliant and the support utterly priceless for our young people.
“The staff are experienced and professional, with a wealth of knowledge about healthy and unhealthy relationships and working with young people to recognise the signs, and work to empower young people to use strategies to manage their individual situation.
“Having Glow involved in supporting our students has been a total success story for our young people.”
“I’m a Young Person’s Violence Advisor, and work to ensure that children and young people who are experiencing abuse have a voice and are not hidden. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to support those in need, and am able to do so through Glow funding my professional qualification.”
“Partnership working is crucial, and working with schools, colleges and other organisations to make sure they are receiving ongoing support is essential!”
“I support young people in abusive relationships, by identifying their priority needs and the best way we can help them to stay safe while in the relationship. We focus on helping young people to recognise healthy and unhealthy behaviour.”
“Recently, I worked with 14-year old Stacey who had experienced high level physical and sexual abuse from her partner and was isolated from friends and family.”
Thanks to Ruth’s support, Stacey:
• Is better able to understand healthy and unhealthy relationships
• Now understands that she has a right to be protected from abuse and that she is not responsible for the way other people behave
• Liked the sessions as they have helped her to recognise her feelings
• Feels less isolated and able to ask for support
• Has stated that she would like a future career in being a Young Person’s Violence Advisor

Imagine a world where no one has to live through an abusive relationship or feel trapped in the cycle of abusive behaviour. That world is possible, but it starts at the heart of the issue, working to end abuse at the source and bringing recovery, education and prevention together to make a lasting impact
