About Jennifer Gilmour

Jennifer Gilmour is an author and advocate for women in abusive relationships, using her own experiences of domestic abuse as a catalyst to bring awareness and to help others. Jennifer has published two publications, Isolation Junction and Clipped Wings which have both been Amazon Best Sellers and received awards. Jennifer speaks at events across the UK and continues to raise awareness through her blog posts, public speaking, radio interviews and social media.

Jennifer has listened to her readers and has grown a digital community to support discussions around domestic abuse online. Starting with her Twitter Chat which opened late 2017 #AbuseTalk, this developed into an online forum in 2018. In 2019, Jennifer launched a podcast which include interviews with those in the sector and gives followers the opportunity to ask burning questions. 

Recently Jennifer has released her first children’s book The Funky Frecks which is about healthy friendships in the hope that this educates children on the signs of an unhealthy friendship, a preventative for possible future abusive relationships. It is backed by 4 different CIC’s and has a resource pack for teachers and parents.
