Survivor stories

Hayley Lowles, 34, was attacked in her home by her boyfriend of seven years, Matthew Sargent.

He attacked her so viciously, that doctors thought at one stage she may not survive.

But she did and has seen him jailed for a minimum of 16 years having been convicted of attempted murder in May 2014.

The mum-of-one was brave enough to tell her story and share why she is behind the Standing Together Against Domestic Abuse campaign.

In the film she explains how she didn't realise she was in an abusive relationship, that she didn't know help was available and encourages other people to seek that help to either stay safe in a relationship or leave it.
