The Phoenix is a beautiful and magical creature from many cultures. The Phoenix rises from the flames, the ashes, and is reborn into a strong and magnificent bird. The Phoenix is a symbol of finding strength and beauty after death or destruction.
From the age of 10, my life has been filled with girls, then women, who have opened up to me and told me the stories of their lives - 1 in 3 of them has included a form or abuse from someone that should have loved and looked after them. Now, at the age of 34, I am seeing even more, and seeing the lack of resources for those in need. Men, Women, the young, and the old, are all being abused, yet they can be hard to understand they are being abused, and to get the help needed.
As Phoenix Women takes its first steps, the aim is to firstly start a peer support group in East Grinstead for women who have been subject to Domestic Abuse. It is not just physical, but also emotional, mental, financial, and sexual.
Phoenix Women is at the very first stages, exploring what facilities there are for women, what we can do for you, and where help is needed.
