Light on the Horizon is the inspiring story of two women who said no to domestic abuse and of an entire community that walked that journey with them.
This book tells the story of how small acts of compassion ignited an enduring community response to relationship abuse. Drawing from the archives and the recollections of those involved in this remarkable project, Light on The Horizon charts the evolution of the charities, Clare Haven Services and Haven Horizons. Recording the social changes over thirty years and challenging the silence and tolerance around relationship abuse, this collection celebrates a community’s positive impact on the lives of women and children.
