With our support, survivors of domestic abuse can reclaim their lives and choose the future they want.

Who needs to ‘Man up’?? I certainly don’t!

I made the call and arranged for a call back from Next Chapter. I took the call, not knowing what to expect and not really expecting much. I answered the phone to Shelly, my saviour. Yes, a powerful word but justified. Shelly talked to me, listened, did not judge, understood. She was kind. She was genuinely interested in me and my problems and wanted to help.
