Stuck in Chains was written, performed, filmed and edited by a group of Bradford-based young people who identified domestic violence as a problem that impacted them, but which goes under the radar in many cases.
The idea of the video is to look at the impact of domestic violence and how it impacts young people.
The lyrics are based on real life experiences, and the hope of those who wrote them is that those going through a similar experience will now know where to go for support.
Sadly, figures published earlier this year revealed that two million people in England and Wales suffered violence, threats, abuse or sexual assault at the hands of their partner or another family member last year.
While police have placed a greater focus on domestic crimes in recent years, figures have barely changed in four years – indicating that a different approach to preventing such crimes is perhaps needed.
If you believe that you may be the victim of abuse, whether it be physical or emotional, don’t suffer in silence. Confide in someone you can trust and make contact with one of the many fantastic domestic violence helplines. Women’s Aid for example, provide a freephone 24 hour National Domestic Violence Helpline which is in partnership with the charity Refuge.
