WIRE’s Impact

Sally’s story

Sally* knew that it was wrong that her partner defrauded her of her life savings and left her penniless.  She didn’t know what she could do about it or if she had the strength to take the matter further. After calling WIRE’s phone line she found out that what her ex- partner did was not only wrong but illegal and there was a lot she could do about it.  Sally’s ex-partner is now in jail for not only what he did to Sally but to the other women who came forward after Sally courageous example.

Anne’s Story

Anne* lost her home when she and her son fled from her violent ex-partner. She rented a flat with her small income from part-time work, but was evicted when  the rent increased. When she couldn’t find an affordable place to rent, she soon lost her part-time work. She and her son were living in their car parked near her son’s school. With no money, job or home, and a dependent child she didn’t think she had anywhere to turn.  In desperation she called WIRE.  At WIRE Anne spoke to a phone support worker who listened and seemed to understand. Anne realised that as dire as her situation was she wasn’t alone and she did have options and support. Most of all she Anne was given hope.
