Game aims to raise domestic violence awareness
A major EU-funded project at the University of Huddersfield will lead to the development of a game designed to help reduce levels of domestic violence. An inter-disciplinary group has been awarded €400,000 from the European Union’s Delegation to the Eastern Caribbean Research Programme: Towards a Future Free from Domestic Violence. This will fund a multi-faceted investigation of domestic violence in the Caribbean countries of Grenada and Barbados. The project as been named None in Three.
Data will be used to develop an interactive, role-playing computer game designed to educate and influence attitude change among potential perpetrators of violence while seeking to empower those who are at risk of victimisation.
