How we can help

“Truth Teams are a fundamental part of a hurting person’s journey to being whole in Christ. The Truth Team I had were, and still are, amazing! I couldn’t have done it without them and would encourage others to have one. Great support and understanding along the whole journey to freedom.” Sarah, Surrey

On the day our Truth Team was set up I was drowning… My Truth Team of seven people was literally life or death for me… three months after my team was set up I was whole. For the first time I was one person instead of 76 fragmented parts… my Truth Team have become my precious family; the transformation in me has been amazing.” Faith, Suffolk
