After a string of abusive relationships, Kaye ended up homeless in South Africa and alone on dangerous streets. With just the clothes on her back and no shoes, Kaye agreed to smuggle drugs out of the country, knowing that she would get caught and deported back to the UK.

Kaye found herself living on the streets of Bournemouth after being released from prison and rehab services.

Eventually she found BCHA’s night shelter, and has never looked back. She says BCHA has not only helped her practically, but reinstated her self-belief.

Kaye’s piece of advice for changemaking:

“Seek help – that’s my advice to anybody”

  • £5 would pay for a toiletry start up pack
  • £20 would pay for school uniform for a child
  • £50 would pay for a kitchen start up pack for Move On
  • £1,000 would create a donation those that have fled abuse with very little belongings
  • £5,000 can convert an office into a sensory room for the children in refuge
