Becky's Experience with MIN

"You made me, me again. I will forever and I mean forever be in your debt. You have no idea what you did for me. The weekly calls, the legal support - you even sorted my divorce and funded it! Oh my god, you set me free! Free from a life of hell. You did all that! Your team, your charity, your help. You saved my life".

About Post Separation Abuse

Mums In Need (MIN) is a Sheffield-based registered charity that works on confronting coercive control. We support mums in Sheffield and the wider South Yorkshire area who have left an abusive relationship with the other parent of their child(ren) and are looking for help and guidance to rebuild their lives.

MIN’s services are tailored to the individual on a case-by-case basis, and can include 1:1 caseworker support, legal advice, counselling, wellbeing sessions, and peer support groups. 

Our vital services provide practical guidance and emotional support to help our mums feel more confident and in control of their situation, to gain an understanding of exactly what they can do to help themselves and their children, and empower them with the skills and confidence to move forward with their lives.
