Domestic Abuse Campaign January 2021

Domestic abuse campaign to raise awareness around the emotional and psychological manipulation abusers use to control their victims.

The campaign launches on 13th January, 2021 and will include the use of a poem written by and for people experiencing domestic abuse.  The public will be asked to contribute a new verse, lines or theme which will be added to the poem. 

A new verse or lines will be released at regularly intervals until the poem is complete and   The completed poem will be published via social media and a video will be made by survivors of abuse reciting the poem. 

The aim is that the creation of the poem and the video will help to raise awareness of domestic abuse and encourage those suffering to seek help from police and/or partner agencies. 

if you would  like to contribute to the poem please send your suggestion to: poem@dc.police.uk.  All contributions will remain anonymous.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, help is available.  Click here for more information and help.
