I was given the opportunity to write a blog about my project for 'Your Family First'. Click here to read the post.
News of my Fixers campaign appeared in the Yorkshire Post and on the University of York website. Click on the image below to read the newspaper article.
I've also been speaking about my Fix on Minster FM, BBC Radio York and BBC Radio Sheffield.
My Fixers booklet is now ready, and I’ve received some really positive feedback. Scroll down to read the comments.
Fixer Emily Morris with her finished booklet
Hollie Jones: ‘The Divorce Support For Young People booklet, written by Emily Morris, is such a wonderful resource for young people to use when faced with such a difficult circumstance. Emily is truly inspirational, and sharing her experience and advice will help other young people, and will undoubtedly make a difference.’
Jack: ‘I appreciated the booklet as I felt I didn’t have much support when I was going through my parents’ separation. I looked on the internet, but I couldn’t find much material.’
Louis: ‘This is great. As I'm currently going through this, I know that it can be difficult to get the support - especially when you are old enough to understand every issue relating to the break-up. Divorce is hard on young children but it can cause major issues for young adults as well, so thank you for helping create a good support system for those who are older and in need of aid.’
John: ‘I think it was relevant and it was nice to see a support network which was supported by your own story. Divorce is a tough thing to go through and the booklet helps people to know they're not alone.'
Natasha: ‘Informative, friendly and relevant for so many young people who deal with the unforeseen and often unacknowledged consequences of divorce. I love the booklet.’
Ben: ‘I have a lot of respect for how you turned a traumatic experience in your life into something so positive.’
Dan: ‘I admire your courage to seek help and share with others - inspirational!’
