Building from Broken Pieces
This six month programme of empowerment is for survivors who have experienced trauma, domestic abuse, forced marriage or human trafficking. Join us to discover what the programme entails and how you can be empowered and restored. Created by Breaking the Silence UK, founded in 2013 to ensure no woman ever feels hopeless or helpless.

Rock and a Hard Place
Kayleigh is a talented teenager whose life should be full of promise. Instead, she finds herself in a cycle of domestic abuse from which there seems no escape until Aunty Jan helps her find a way out, after twenty long years of ‘put up and shut up.

Based on a true story, together with the combined true-life experiences shared by other women, the play explores the complex nature of domestic abuse, ranging from coercion in its many forms to women’s deaths at the hands of abusive partners.
All profits from this play will be used to support the work of women’s refuges nationally.

Some Shocking Statistics

  • 1 in 3 women will be a victim of domestic abuse in their lifetime
  • On average 2 women a week are killed by a current or former male partner
  • Up to 10,000 forced marriages take place in the UK every year
  • An estimated 2.5 million people are in forced labour (including sexual exploitation) at any given time as a result of trafficking
