  • ” its great that you guys are focusing people’s minds on the issue of domestic violence by devoting a month to raising awareness. In the UK we’re trying different approaches to encouraging young people to talk through the implications of domestic violence by using film and digital media. We’ve created a site called that shows a drama about a young woman’s experience of living with an abusive partner. This is a UK approach but I hope you guys find it useful. Thanks.”
