I came to the UK when I had an arranged marriage in Pakistan. I was abused by my husband and mother in law over a period of 3 years. I had contacted EACH for support on housing, and referred me to a specialist worker in EACH, for women experiencing violence. EACH raised a safeguarding alert because of the abuse and my mother in law was arrested by the police with an investigation carried out. They contacted the Home Office for me and I was granted a domestic violence concession, to help me support and fund myself whilst my application to settle in the UK was dealt with. My application to remain in the UK was approved and I am now living independently and looking forward to getting on with my life.
