Raj Holness – Awarded West Midlands Woman of the Year 2015, and West Midlands Most Inspirational Woman 2015

I stayed silent for 20 years, not because I had nothing to say, but because I had no way of saying it, my abusers taunting me repeatedly that no one would listen and there would be no escape for me – but they were wrong – and when I finally found the courage to break the silence, a project was born, Breaking the Silence!

With that, I travelled around the country speaking at over 200 organisations, highlighting the cause of domestic abuse on not only the victim but also on those close to them. Over the last year I have spoken to 1000’s of women, men and young people on my experiences of domestic abuse and forced marriage and how I managed to escape.
