A GROUP of people who have ‘been there no matter what’ are being nominated for the Ravenscroft-sponsored Angel of the Year award.
The Bailiwick of Guernsey Victim Support & Witness Service has been put forward by Emily Nuttall, who said that it had been a lifeline for her over the last five years.
‘I went through some very traumatic events in my life and survived emotional abuse and family breakdowns and domestic violence, which meant I had to go through the family courts as a result,’ said Miss Nuttall.
‘During the lockdown period a lot of my trauma resurfaced as well as traumatising and difficult events, which has massively impacted me and my anorexia and mental health recovery and had to involve the police,’ she said in her nomination.
She mentions two staff members in particular who helped her, Hannah Robilliard and Ann Goss: ‘They have been there no matter what.
‘They have been a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on.
‘They have helped me to be safe and be supported and listened to without being judged for what I am currently going through and have reminded me I am not alone and that they are with me every step of the way. Without them I’d hate to think where I would be in my life today.
‘Thank you so much for being here you are a lifeline.’
