WMWA have worked with Suzanne and Parkinson Wright for many years and it is an important association which we value highly. Our IDVA (Independent Domestic Violence Advisors) team provide guidance & support for victims – giving them the confidence they need to seek legal advice.  Suzanne provides both legal and emotional assistance at a time when they are needed most – her professional expertise and legal abilities have ensured positive outcomes for so many, which may otherwise not have been achieved.

WMWA IDVA Service Manager Lisa Peplow said:

“Suzanne’s warm approach with victims/survivors of domestic abuse is invaluable – she ensures they feel safe and understand what is in front of them at a time when the prospect of facing court is frightening in itself. Sue’s professionalism, legal expertise and empathy is inspirational – she makes a difference each and every day and I am proud to have worked so closely with her”.

It’s fantastic to see recognition for someone who has made such a difference to so many women and who works so hard to combat domestic abuse – we send Suzanne our thanks and warmest congratulations.
