When Kate needed support to help her work through her trauma, she found it simply didn’t exist. Kate had a vision of what support would be and about how it could help Survivors to move forward. She could picture “a centre that was easily accessible, offered a holistic approach to meet the needs of Survivors of all genders, their partners and their families. It would offer a range of support services in one place to address many issues, not just one. It would be welcoming, non-threatening and safe. It would be Break the Silence.”
