Name: Ollie Williams
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2013
Location: Wrexham
Campaign: Help for male victims of domestic abuse

It is a preconception held by many people that only women are victims of domestic abuse.

 

This is just not true. Men can also suffer in an abusive relationship and when they do, they too need support.

 

My team and I want to raise awareness of this issue as we think it often goes unnoticed.

 

We also want to make sure men who are being abused know where they can go to seek advice and further information.

 

To do this we’re creating a leaflet with the help of Fixers. We'll make an English and a Welsh language version and will distribute it in Wrexham.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:

 

Jake Ellison Ryan Taylor Nicole Kelly
Ben Carter Kelly McGrath Rebecca Rogers
Lauren Croft Charlotte Beckett Beth Wright
Jack Peers Lacey Williams Kirsty Blackwell
Elliot Harlow Amber Edwards Rosemary Anne Morgan
Georgia Lightwood Gabriella Risi  

Coleg Cambria
Coleg Cambria have supported my Fixers project. The team there have provided us with rooms to hold our meetings and a location for our photoshoot - the picture on the front of the leaflet was taken on site.

 

The Dyn Project
The Dyn Project are backing my Fixers project. The organisation provides support to men who are experiencing domestic abuse from a partner and they have allowed us to include their information on our leaflet.

Broken Rainbow

Broken Rainbow is a national LGBT Domestic Violence Helpline. The team there supports my Fixers project and their information is also included on our leaflet.

 

Safe Wrexham 

Representatives from Safe Wrexham came to talk to us about domestic abuse and to get us thinking about the issues surrounding domestic abuse. They supported my Fixers project by offering guidance on where to go to find out more information and to get ideas.
