Tom - Victim of abuse

Tom is the son of a single mother who turned to alcohol abuse when she lost her job. He sleeps on the floor and lives in constant fear of his mother’s next drunken rage.

They live in poverty, in a cramped house, and Tom dreams of his mother being addiction free.

Leeds Children’s Charity gave Tom some much needed respite and opened his eyes to the world around him. He enjoyed being cared for by our happy and understanding staff, whilst playing, making friends and enjoying the true essence of a fun-filled summer break.
