Thanks for the lovely informal video, it's inspiring to hear Belle talk because using the law to help people is her vocation in life - to some it's just a career but she goes out of her way to help all her friends and family with advice, not just clients. Good luck, Belle!

Unfortunately domestic violence and child abuse increase in poor economic times often due to the increased stress. So I hate to imagine what will happen to children and families if/when legal aid runs out, especially when divorce is one of the most traumatic and stressful events for people to go through.
Hopefully people will see your project as a way to support the health and safety of women, children and families in general. Bless you Belle for raising awareness and making a difference.
