You are not alone

Thousands of women experience domestic violence up and down the country every single day. Many feel scared and isolated.

That’s why Refuge teamed up with ITV’s Loose Women on a campaign that told women: you are not alone.

Ten years ago, Loose Women presenter Jamelia experienced domestic violence at the hands of a former partner. On a special episode of Loose Women, she opened up to the audience about her frightening experience. You can see the film below.

Jamelia-landscape-test1To mark the launch of ‘You are not Alone’, Refuge and ITV’s Loose Women released the results of a YouGov survey which showed the shocking prevalence of domestic violence. It showed that more than one in three British women have experienced domestic violence and that almost two fifths of victims tell no one. 35% of women say they wouldn’t want anyone to know.
