Rosie’s story


Rosie joined us from a women’s hostel where she lived after fleeing an abusive relationship. She describes the support she has received from Latch over the past 18 months as being her ‘saving grace’.

She has worked hard to transform her mental and physical wellbeing. This has included reviewing her diet, going to the gym, taking up the couch to 5km programme and working on her mental health through our psychotherapy service. We have also worked with Rosie to introduce meditation and breathwork to her daily routine.

Rosie has already taken positive steps towards building a positive new future including finding work in the hospitality industry. She started a University course in Philosophy this Autumn.

She explains how the new techniques she has learnt have helped her:

“They ground me and help me find the state of mind to develop perspective and deal with past issues in a much better way.”


Our aim is to build positive futures for even more people like Rosie… find out how you can help support our work or read about more people we’ve helped.
