“I have the pleasure of meeting Vickie earlier this year on a Zoom call. At first, I was sceptical about what the call was aiming to achieve, but as I listened to Vickie and her story, all the scepticism was replaced by an admiration for what she was trying to achieve and her enthusiasm to help others.
As the Member of Parliament for Bracknell, Crowthorne, Finchampstead, Sandhurst and Wokingham Without, I am proud to support Kaleidoscopic UK.
Domestic abuse has no place in today’s society, and we must do all we can to support those who have been victims, women, men and their families. For those who are perpetrators of domestic abuse we must break the cycle, much of their abuse has been learned from observative abuse elsewhere. However, the priority is supporting the victims and to break the cycle of learned behaviour.
The work of Vickie and her co-volunteers are an inspiration to us all. The charity has gone beyond the local area and supports victims across the UK. I will be a champion for the charity with my parliamentary colleagues.”
