At A Way Out we travel alongside our service users as they journey from vulnerability and uncertainty to a destination of security and hopefulness. This road is by no means a direct and certain path. Past experiences of abuse and exploitation can produce temporary diversions and U-turns; entrenched behaviours resulting from addictions can cause road blocks, or even bring an untimely end to the journey completely - such a heart breaking endpoint has a profound effect upon everyone involved.One of the core values of A Way Out is ‘love’. Love permeates the very essence of our work. To quote a bible verse “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things”.
This also describes the amazing staff and volunteers of A Way Out who bear, believe, hope and endure with true resilience and compassion and walk the path of outreach, engagement, intervention and prevention with vulnerable women and young people in Stockton.We bear, we believe, we hope and we endure and we aim to transfer these qualities to our clients.
The encouragement we receive from supporters fuels us to carry on and can inspire our beneficiaries to take that step forward into recovery. There are many ways that you can become part of this journey - volunteer, fundraise or even simply donate a chocolate egg to help us gift all of our service users at Easter.
