Our Story

More than 16 years supporting vulnerable individuals.

Celebrating Strength Through Adversity

A Story of Resilience and Hope

How it began...

Palm Cove Society was established in 2007 by Yvonne Hall (now Yvonne Stocks DL) and Gerard Stocks originally to support new mothers in Bradford who had no recourse to public funding.

From Humble Beginnings

Starting with just one four bedroom property in Bradford, we now assist hundreds of clients across Yorkshire and the Humber.

Expanding Our Reach​

Since then, our impact has grown, encompassing survivors of domestic violence, refugees, asylum seekers, and survivors of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.

The Palm Cove Way

Our commitment to doing what's right for our communities has come to be known as the "Palm Cove Way." It's about going above and beyond, forging new paths, and developing innovative solutions.



Spreading Awareness

We’ve partnered with major broadcasters like ITV and BBC to share survivor success stories, conducted meetings with collaborative partners, engaging talks, and impactful presentations to educate and raise awareness about Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.

Strong Partnerships

Our network of partnerships across the UK has been instrumental in realising our mission to empower people and create safer communities. Together, we’re creating a brighter future for all.


Our organisation’s impact has garnered recognition from various organisations throughout the UK.
