“The Milk exchange have created a confidential safe space full of supportive women who listen, support, and advise based on shared experiences. It’s been invaluable to feel heard and understood at last. And have a space to go to for information. without having to search high and low and filter out opinion from fact. I love this space.”“My ex has used his considerable wealth to bully me in family court for years. Representing myself, I felt hopeless. Then, I discovered The Milk Exchange. They not only listened but connected me with an affordable Legal Expert who serves as a buffer against my ex”.“At The Milk Exchange, I find my voice. and reclaim my true self. I gain insights into the law, finding sources of support. Above all, I learn about my own journey, how I once felt isolated, but now that both I and my children are not alone”.
