What is Normal?

We've created three storyboards to look at situations that could occur in your relationship.

For each scenario you get to choose what you would do.

Recently the Government changed the official definition of domestic violence, lowering the age range to include anyone over the age of 16. The Government's aim is ' to increase awareness that young people in this age-group do experience domestic violence and abuse.'

At Oii My Size we are seeking to raise awareness our own way, click on one of the storyboards below to get started…
