KidsOut goes live on BBC Radio London

Date Posted: 03 Jun 2015

Thousands of Londoners tuned-in to listen to KidsOut CEO, Gordon Moulds, and a mum from a refuge, Michele, being interviewed by BBC radio presenter, Nikki Bedi who was standing in for Vanessa Feltz on her BBC Radio London morning show.

The radio interview began with Michele giving a moving account of her own experience of domestic abuse and the damaging effect it had on her and her children: she also gave relevant advice for other victims who are in a similar situation. After listening to Michele’s harrowing account, Gordon explained the wonderful work of KidsOut by providing tangible and effective support in these situations, working with mothers and children while in refuge and beyond, through our Children Services. Michele explained how the charity had helped her and her son by providing a positive experience for him with a fun day out and also a toy box when they relocated to their new home. She went on to explain how these had improved her son’s self-esteem and how, in turn, this had affected her. 

Our thanks to the team at BBC Radio London, and Niki in particular, for giving KidsOut this opportunity to demonstrate the impact that our amazing work can have on dome of the most disadvantaged children in this country.  Equally, we are grateful for Michele for her bravery and candour in telling her story.
