Yvonne Ellis – Founder and Director:
“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Daughter Arise, an initiative I envisioned back in July 2010. For many years I have carried a burning desire to help girls and women who like me have been through sexual abuse, emotional and physical abuse which has resulted in low self esteem/confidence issues. The vision for setting up this company was birthed off the back of my autobiography Daughter Arise, the book I wrote that chronicles my experience of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of my father. On my journey since being taken into government care at thirteen, I have met many girls, women and men who have been through this kind of abuse, from different paths of life; and have witnessed firsthand the devastation it has left behind for many.
Daughter Arise is here to stand in the gap with those who feel isolated for whatever reason and I want those affected to be able to gain strength, support and encouragement from the services this organisation offers. I believe greatly that Daughter Arise will have a great impact not only in individual lives but the wider community as we continue to raise awareness.”
