What people are saying about Equation…
The GREAT Project is absolutely amazing! It totally helped my son understand why we no longer live with his dad. He can also assess a healthy/unhealthy relationship and grew up so much emotionally. 10/10
I was able to take back control of my life having received support from Equation. I feel more independent and for once in a very long time I feel more in control. Talking to you gave me a safe space.
I believe that all people deserve fair, equal relationships and that nobody should live with domestic violence. Equation do amazing work in our local area to move towards this as well as vital work supporting all survivors of domestic violence.
The anger session really helped me. Especially hearing how everyone else copes with their anger…I do things differently now.
