A short film, funded by the Police & Crime Commissioner, Barry Coppinger was launched on 3 February to coincide with Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week. The video was produced to raise awareness of the support available to victims of sexual abuse in the local area. Barry Coppinger commissioned the video as part of his ongoing work to tackle violence against women and girls.
During the film, a victim of sexual abuse talks about her experience with the support agencies that she used and encourages other victims to come forward and access the counselling and support that she did.
