We're willing to talk about the things that others aren't

"The more I looked into your site and the different worksheets and things, the more tears welled up in my eyes. I'm not alone. I realise that, and there’s people here to help me. They don’t know me but they’re there and they care about me. A total stranger."

Were you involved with the Bristol Crisis Service for Women between 1986 and 2014?

Get involved with our heritage project! Over the next 18 months we will be recording oral histories of the women who founded, worked and  volunteered at the pioneering Bristol Crisis Service for Women. We want to capture as many memories of being involved with this groundbreaking organisation from as many women as possible, so if you or someone you know have got something to share, please get in touch.

I am writing this because I need to read this - guest blog from Hattie Porter

I felt worried about writing this. It feels self-centred to be so focused on what I’m going through amidst the scale of a pandemic. But that’s exactly why I need to write this. Because I am not the only one feeling like this. Because sometimes just hearing an echo of your own thoughts is enough to feel less alone for a little while.
