These videos are not suitable for people under 15; they contain scenes which viewers may find difficult to watch. All the stories you watch below are based on the real-life experiences of people in Bradford who experienced domestic abuse.
As part of our Co-production commitment, we work with victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence. They asked us to help break the myth that victims are often seen as ill-educated; unskilled; unemployed and live in poor housing. This simply isn’t true for as we know, abuse can happen to anyone.
In response, we produced ‘Intensive Care’ – the true story of a professional senior nurse working in a Bradford hospital. Skilled, employed, independent… a victim.
Knock Knock is the powerful story of one woman’s experience of a physically and psychologically abusive relationship, and how she finally got out and rebuilt her life.
Home Sick tells the story which sadly so many women face, of a life of servitude, abuse and loneliness, all in a foreign country.
Our film Alarm Bells is a stark reminder that victims of domestic abuse can also be male, and that psychological abuse is just as damaging as physical abuse. Watch Alarm Bells, which tells the story of one man’s struggle within an abusive relationship, from the perspective of his friend.
These videos have been made by other organisations who deal with domestic abuse and/or sexual violence. Please be aware that some viewers may find the content distressing.
