Pippa Simpson – Individual Award Nominee – 2011

Many years ago, after experiencing horrific DV, Pippa came to our refuge. Until treatment, she suffered post traumatic stress. Nevertheless she became a volunteer, gravitated to a course on DV at college, and eventually became a member of the staff. She is an expert on immigration and housing issues and eventually she became a manager. Over the hard times of the past few years she had unfortunately been made redundant, not once, but three times. Each time she has turned up for work the next day and worked on despite the heavy toll it has taken on her finances. She was offered jobs but turned them down in loyalty to the women she knows need help.
