With Fixers I want to highlight the damaging effects on children who witness domestic abuse in the home.
Even though it is something I have not experienced personally I believe it is a growing problem in our community.
I fear there isn’t enough awareness of domestic abuse and I worry people don’t recognise it or try to rationalise signs of abuse. When researching this project, we found that some children think abuse is normal.
I want parents to know that if children witness violence in the home, it can have a negative impact on their development.
Fixers has helped me produce an interactive poster to help people spot the signs of domestic abuse.
