The strength and resilience of women who have escaped abusive relationships is recognized in a new exhibition at The Salvation Army’s International Headquarters (IHQ) in London. The exhibition features a selection of paintings and drawings by women from The Link Café (TLC), a Salvation Army-run drop-in center in Morden, near London, for women who have left abusive partners.

The program offers practical assistance, but also provides support through counseling, help with housing, and social services issues. Ultimately providing a family of caring people who offer long-term support. On the day of the launch, the women whose artworks featured in the exhibition met for lunch in Café 101 at IHQ, they were amazed to see their works on display and for many, this was a huge boost to their self-confidence and feeling of worth.

Captain Emma Scott, who oversees the running of TLC, reveals that the facility has been running for four-and-a-half years, during which time none of the women have returned to their partners – a quite remarkable feat. Studies show that women return to abusive partners an average of seven times before managing to break free.
