Storytelling with a purpose #blog #blogging

Domestic violence is a common, highly damaging crime that affects one in three women in their lifetimeand one in six men. The UK’s Office for National Statistics reported that over 2.4 million adults experienced domestic violence within England and Wales in 2019, that’s 5.7% of the adult population. 

At the moment we do not have accurate statistics on how many people use domestic violence in their intimate relationships.

Working with children’s charity Barnardo’s, a team of us are developing a prevention intervention that uses interactive storytelling to do just that.
