Domestic Abuse Awareness isn’t about an image in a campaign for one month out of the year. It’s so, so, much more than that.

It’s about the thousands of images that make up a person’s life. The images over the years from the good and the bad days. The Birthdays, Christmases, Christenings and every life event they experience. The days they felt like they’d turned a corner……to the days where they felt all hope was lost.

One single image can’t possibly convey domestic abuse. Because it effects all of us in some way or other. Directly or indirectly. It’s a collage of emotions and a rich tapestry which no ONE image could ever do justice.

Every piece of a victim and survivor’s life at some point, comes together. And eventually we see the whole picture.
