Refuge & Avon 1in4women: support a friend video

Did you know that one woman in four will experience domestic violence at some time in her life? This means that someone you know - a sister, friend, daughter or colleague - could be at risk, right now.

Watch this video - it could help you support that someone - and possibly even save her life.

This interactive video for the 'Support a Friend' campaign is the latest phase of the 1in4women campaign, launched by national domestic violence charity Refuge and Avon. How you respond to the questions asked will determine how the video plays out.

Along the way you will learn how to support a friend or loved one who might be experiencing domestic violence and learn that the issues of domestic violence are far more complex than you might have thought. We want as many people as possible to watch this video so please do share it far and wide. Visit the other pages of our website for further information.

Refuge offers confidential, specialist support for women and children experiencing domestic violence. Our services change lives and save lives.

Please share this video far and wide - we need to reach as many people as possible and let them know that we are here.

Thank you for your support.

Thanks too to Fursy Teyssier - the incredible artist responsible for this animation.
