Thank you to BBC Wiltshire Radio for inviting us to speak today on the morning show about the impact of The Archer's domestic abuse story.

The BBC radio soap has been running a storyline of domestic abuse by a character called Rob Titchener on his wife Helen over the past 2.5 years and it culminated last night in Helen stabbing and killing Rob when he turned on their son Henry.

We were really pleased to be invited to talk about the power of awareness raising through soap storylines, together with Swindon Women's Aid in discussion with DJ Jonathan Morrell.

The storyline has already raised £80,000 for national charities.

The following article written by Louiza Patikas who plays Helen, talks about her understanding that domestic abuse can happen to anyone: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/apr/01/helen-archers-domestic-abuse-husband-louisa-patikas
