Children are often the forgotten victims of domestic violence and homicide, this video has been produced to demonstrate how this affects the children involved. Whilst the children in this clip are acting, the words that they use are direct quotes from children that have been affected by these crimes. Our research shows that early support and intervention helps the children, along with their carers, feel safe, secure and re-build their lives after these traumatic events.
The Joanna Simpson Foundation is committed to driving sustained investment into services that can improve the well-being of these children based on detailed research into their needs.
We are always looking for supporters and any help is welcome so if you can spare some time to help us run fundraising events, help with administration or book-keeping or becoming a sponsor please get in touch.
Thanks for watching
On 13th January Radio 5 ran a feature about how the CPS are letting down victims and witnesses, Dianna was interviewed by them to talk about her experience at the trial of Robert Brown who killed her daughter Jo.
Dianna talks about how the CPS handling of the trial was a catalogue of disasters and how through successful campaigning, in May 2014, she and the Joanna Simpson Foundation brought about the first ever legal guidance to prosecutors in cases of domestic homicide.
Dianna also speaks eloquently about Jo and the wonderful daughter, mother and friend that she was.
