“The support has been absolutely amazing, it’s the first time I’ve ever spoken to anybody about it… I had never told anybody the whole truth about it all, you know, I might hint, imply a bit to a friend or somebody, but you just feel like, too ashamed, stupid like you’ve done something wrong… And also people will make judgements of you don’t leave somebody, whereas talking to you [a support worker] just has… it’s like a weight has been lifted”.
“So what it was, was that the social services department were involved, because of something at the school, about the kids saying that daddy shouts at home and stuff. So anyway, they came round and they said to me, we can offer you some suggested courses… and at first, I was a bit sort of defensive about it, because I thought there’s nothing wrong… But after a while I thought about it, and I said to them, actually, you know what, can you give me more information about this course?”
