Nadia's story

At just 15 years old the breakdown of Nadia’s family meant she found herself with no choice but to stay with her drug addicted ex-boyfriend. Nadia was surrounded by dangers and constant threats to her safety. She often spent long nights in the park trying to escape her ex-boyfriend’s drunken father.

But after coming to Centrepoint, today Nadia is rebuilding her life. She's training to be a hairdresser and has a place of her own. Most importantly, she has a future to look forward to.
