I'm just back from a visit to the Families Fighting for Justice organisation in Kirkdale.
What a fascinating group of people. It was great to hear about the work they do supporting people who've lost a relative through murder. This means emotional support, but also advice and other help.
I met a lovely lady whose son was murdered and so know knows all about the things that other people in her tragic situation will go through. She and her colleagues must have made life a bit easier for others through just being available to talk and support
The organisation does more than invidual support though. It also helps make people more aware of their legal rights (I certainly learned about an aspect of the law today) and campaigns on justice issues.
It also runs a group supporting children, which sounds great, if exhausting.
There may be a couple of things I can help them with in the future... so watch this space.
The organisation has a website so if you want to find out more you can look them up here.
