Voice Against Violence (VAV) have made a brilliant film to tackle domestic abuse called One Voice at a Time – Tackling domestic abuse through the voice of the young.

In the film they talk about how domestic abuse affected them. They tell education and other professionals how important it is to understand what helps. They also explain why they ‘went to the top’ to make changes that will improve things for others.

VAV is a group of eight young people who have experienced domestic abuse. They worked for over two years to encourage the Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities to stop domestic abuse from happening in Scotland.

VAV members want to make sure that if you are experiencing domestic abuse you get the help you need. They say:

‘Don’t believe people don’t care and don’t give up hope – there’s so much good support out there’

Have a look at the film and all the great advice and information on the VAV website.
