      Has anyone decided to find refuge accommodation in a completely different town or city? What are your experiences if you have?

      If you have children, how did it affect them and how did you find the process of finding a school place?

      Hi there, I haven’t experienced this but wanted to bump your post up. Have you spoken to women’s aid for advice? xxxx

        Thank you and I spoke to them to ask whether it was possible to seek refuge accommodation in another part of the country and they said yes and that I would receive support applying to housing in that area.

        I would like know if anyone who has uprooted found it to be the best decision they ever made…

      Yes, my only option was to leave town but I did head home”ish” so my family are now within easy distance to visit for a day.

      I can’t pretend it’s been easy. I haven’t made new friends here, lockdowns have made it hard but I’ve not felt ready to hit the social scene anyway.

      I’ve stayed in touch with some very supportive friends from my old life and I spend quite a bit of time on the forum. Online friends are my new normal and it works well for me.
