Rachel makes emergency trip to help a young mum
At short notice, volunteer Rachel Nolan delivered much needed items to an 18-year-old mother in Birmingham, who we’ll call Angela. Angela’s two-day-old son needed a place to sleep, nappies and other essentials. The call for help was with us on Monday, and we were with Angela the following day.
This emergency trip was quite a trek for Rachel.
Only through volunteers like Rachel can we meet the demand for support across Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull. But we could do with more people to spread the load.
In just the past few weeks, we’ve had cases referred to us of women who have undergone FGM, survivors of Modern Slavery, refugees and asylum seekers with no support network and a pregnant woman sofa surfing in south Birmingham.
