Campaign: To encourage people not to let domestic violence shape their lives

When I was about five years old I noticed my stepfather treating my mother how she shouldn't be treated.

 

Every time she fought back he would get even more violent. As I was getting older and growing up I could see how it was really affecting her. 

 

I felt like I couldn’t say anything because if I did, my mum and I could end up dead. I’d end up blaming myself, locking myself in my room and not eating or drinking. 

 

I went on to do a computer course at college and now I'm a qualified IT technician.

 

I've made a film with Fixers because I want to show other people affected by domestic violence that your life can be the way you want it to be.

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix: 

 

Scott Wright

Laura Dingley

Peter Copper

Chantelle Davis

Brian Attrill

Paul Phillimore

 

Louise Bunting from the YMCA supported me with this Fix.
