Freya – Joint EHMP and CWJ Award Winner – 2020

For years, Freya has used her own experiences to campaign on the issue of police failures to properly hold their own officers to account for domestic abuse. As well as raising awareness through social media, she has worked with the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and the Centre for Women’s Justice to draw attention to how perpetrators of abuse are protected by police forces. The rise in the profile of this problem, and the soon-expected changes to police policy and procedure on this front are a testament to the impact of her work.
