Positive Social Impact:
Personal- Miss X and her son are safe, well and able to live their lives more freely in the confidence that they are protected by the law and their community.
She benefits from a reduction in the mental toll of anxiety and the intense and noticeable physical effects.
Financial- Miss X can continue her life free from the debt she would have accrued as a result of borrowing over and above the means of a single mother with a young child.
Community– Strong and safe communities benefit enormously from a reduction in increased levels of crime, harassment and disorder. Empowering individuals to know their rights and gain protection prevents the fear and uncertainty that can be felt throughout a community and can help not only those at the heart of the issue but also those in the wider area, friends, employers, children at the same school.
