HRH The Duchess of Gloucester visited SAFE@LAST in 2007 to mark the opening of the charity’s children’s refuge. She specifically requested to revisit the charity in 2012 to see how it had developed over the last five years.
SAFE@LAST Founder Trustee Hilary Massarella commented “It was an honour and a privilege to welcome HRH The Duchess of Gloucester on her return to SAFE@LAST and a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase how we have continued to develop since her last visit. We were particularly pleased to be able to give HRH the opportunity to have an in-depth chat with some of the young people we have worked with. She was very interested to hear directly from the young people about their experiences of running away.”
