I tried to stand up to my dad - a survivor's story

I tried to stand up to my dad - a survivor's story

The video features the story of a real domestic violence survivor and client of Shine. At the time of the abuse, he was only a child. His words are his, but to protect his privacy and for safety reasons, his story is being told by an actor.

“"When I got to the Shine refuge with my boys, I felt an enormous weight lift off me. I realised how much anxiety and fear I had been carrying around for so long. Shine helped me get a Protection Order and Parenting Order against S. Within days, I began sleeping and eating normally again." ”
