Charlotte’s Story

Mother of one Charlotte sought Iceni’s help after fleeing the domestic violence she had suffered for the best part of 15 years, and which saw her hospitalised five times.

Charlotte, who was also sexually abused by her father at the age of 13, was identified early on as somebody who may benefit from our Rapport programme.

“If I didn’t do something right, I was punched in the face. Iceni made me realise it should never have been like that.”

Rapport is designed to minimise the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE), strengthen parent-child relationships, and ensure children can grow up in a safe environment.

Through working closely with Charlotte and her young son, we have been able to prevent the need for social services intervention and keep the family together.
