Our Story

AIM Northwest was founded in 2020 by survivors of domestic abuse Catherine Prince and Kerry Bamber. As colleagues and friends, Cath and Kerry had a shared passion and drive to make a difference for those affected by domestic abuse. Their vision was to establish a charity that tackles domestic abuse, where ‘ALL INDIVIDUALS MATTER’. Men, women and children, whether they be victims or perpetrators. These are the foundation values on which AIM Northwest was created.

Kerry has for the last 3 years continued to dedicate her time to the growth and development of AIM Northwest.

Kerry's Story

"I was a strong character, 20 years old and in love for the first time."

As soon as I fell pregnant, everything changed. I suddenly became his property, he told me what I could and couldn’t do, who I could see and couldn’t see, until I wasn’t allowed to see anyone. Totally isolated, I wasn’t allowed to work or have my own money. It made me feel reliant on him and completely worthless. Abused, physically and emotionally until I was a shadow of the person I once was. Even though I am from a loving and supportive family I felt that I had no choices, heavily pregnant, spending a night at the bus station in Leigh when he threw me out of the flat one night. Too ashamed to tell my friends or family what I had allowed myself to become. Domestic abuse is a lonely place.
