"I contacted the Foundation after watching a recent BBC documentary on football abuse. The Foundation has been brilliant from the initial call I received through to the volunteer. The one-to-one support is what I needed having been pushed away from other organisations I feel were dysfunctional and unsupportive in what they were offering."
"I feel that I am normal. The therapy has changed my entire life... I have known for years, I was in a toxic relationship... by the end of the 12 weeks, I had found the confidence to end the relationship, and I have never looked back. I have also found the strength, to move out of the area I live in, to start a new life for me and my child. I don’t need support calls anymore, as I now have the strategies to manage, but I know you are always there. Thank you isn’t enough!"
"Without the involvement of The Maggie Oliver Foundation and their numerous daily phone calls and emails, our granddaughter’s plight would have been buried and forgotten forever. I dread to think of how many victims and families have indeed gone by the wayside because they never knew of the wonderful ‘Maggie Oliver Foundation’."
