When I was three months pregnant my partner was arrested and charged with assault.
He had never been in trouble with the police before.
I found the world of courts and lawyers incredibly daunting as I had no personal experience of them.
When Matt was sentenced to two years in prison I thought my world was falling apart. There was no support out there for the forgotten victims of crime like me – families and friends of those sentenced for a crime.
I wanted to create a booklet full of advice so people would not feel alone when their loved ones are going through the criminal justice system.
