No More Injury Time

For some months, I have been involved in the development of a major campaign called ‘No More Injury Time’. In collaboration with NCDV (my day job), Solace Women’s Aid and social media platform ‘Four Nine’, the campaign is to run alongside the Euro Football Tournament. To highlight the fact that when England lose a match, domestic abuse incidents increase by 38%. Take a look at our launch film below………

I can attest to this statistic. My abusive ex husband was a so called football fan. I say so called because he seemed to use it as an excuse for violence. I used to dread the key in the door when he had been to a football match of his favourite team. Major tournaments were worse for me. I lost count of how many remote controls went through the television. I lost count of the times I would be hit. As a consequence, I hate football!

This campaign is something I am really proud of, so I wanted to share it with all of you. Please look for it online and share on your platforms. You can find it by searching for NCDV on any of the social media platforms.

There will be other content over the coming days and on the 19th June, a video podcast will be released which I filmed earlier this week in London. I will try and share this for those who are interested.
