Obituary: Dr Maggie Costen

The Guernsey Press has published an Obituary for our Chair Dr Maggie Costen who died in October 2018. Shaun Shackleton, Features Reporter for the Press, has published the article on line at press article.

Maggie worked tirelessly for Safer until she died. She was not only our Chair but also used her extensive skills and knowledge as a moving on counsellor. She understood people and had empathy for all the victims of domestic abuse whether they were children in a family where there was domestic abuse, or adults who were survivors of abuse.
