Over the course of the year Restored is releasing five videos/film shorts around the theme of ‘In Churches Too’. The aim is to raise awareness of the impact of domestic abuse, dispel some of the myths surrounding abuse, some of the statistics of abuse in the UK and also what we can do about it. The videos are different in length, target audience and nature. They are designed to be used in a variety of settings. Some are more emotive than others and it is advisable to think through likely reactions to showing the video in the context in which it is being shown and have appropriate resources or support available.
How domestic abuse impacts on a child
This 90 second video is of a child talking about the impact of the abuse he sees and how it affects his mummy. It comes with a health warning as it is emotive in nature. It is incredibly powerful and aims to lay bare the myth that children don’t see or know that domestic abuse is happening. Watch the video below.
