We were delighted to have had a visit by HRH Princess Eugenie who visited Palm Cove Society to discuss Modern Slavery:
Yvonne Hall and Gerard Stocks are proud that after 30 years of being held captive they were there to meet Katy Morgan-Davies in October 2013, the day she walked free. Katy has since been supported in all aspects of life by Yvonne, Gerard and the team at Palm Cove Society.
On the 29th January 2015, following the 23 year sentence handed to Aravindan Balakrishnan at Southwark County Court Katy Morgan-Davies has made the brave decision to reveal her identity. For the full story see the following links:

“After more than two years supporting the women in the Aravindan Balakrishna case we welcome the verdict and are pleased that justice has been done.
We will continue to provide ongoing support to the women for as long as we can.”
We would like to congratulate all agencies involved in this case, particularly the Metropolitan Police.
We would also like to congratulate the support workers of Palm Cove Society for their outstanding support of the women.
A huge thank you to all involved in this case.
This is the end of the beginning and now starts the rest of the incredible journey for each of the women.”
