Working with victims of domestic abuse

Creative activity is immensely absorbing and rewarding. It can often be the key that opens the door on a brighter and more hopeful future, helping women to change their futures. We have worked with three Women’s Aid organisations (in Oxford, Slough and Milton Keynes) to produce visual work of a very high quality. Two of these projects resulted in public exhibitions.

“Once I put my feelings down on paper I felt like my life would soon get better,”  said one workshop participant.

Beyond Physical – It’s Everyone’s Business

The Partnership was pleased to be able to support Beyond Physical – It’s Everyone’s Business (March 2017) an event looking at coercive control in the context of domestic abuse.  The event, hosted by  The Thames Valley Domestic Abuse Scrutiny Panel and sponsored by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner Thames Valley, received very positive feedback – presentation material can be seen below:
