Feelings before the refuge

This artwork was created by children and young people as part of Women’s Aid research for the No Woman Turned Away Project report – Nowhere to turn for children and young people: documenting the journeys of children and young people into refuges. It focuses on their experiences whilst their family was searching for a safe space to live.

[Image description: A child’s drawing shows little faces with different expressions in red, orange, yellow and green. Around the faces, different words such as ‘mad’, ‘scared’ and ‘sad’ are handwritten. At the top of the drawing, ‘this is my messed up feeling before the refuge’ is handwritten, with an arrow pointing downwards.]
