BBC RADIO WALES - INTERVIEW
Managing Director Eira spoke to BBC Radio Wales about the importance of personal safety awareness and the lack of education around this topic in today’s society.
It was a conversation aimed to inform the public about RESOLVEit’s lead in tackling problems regarding personal safety and well being; protecting both children and adults through essential curriculum based life skills workshops.
(Ellie Gould and the importance of self-defence in schools)
RESOLVEit had the pleasure of working alongside Tilda, Harriet and Ellie who are campaigning in memory of their dear friend Ellie Gould who was murdered by former boyfriend Tom Griffiths on the 3rd of May 2019.
'Ellie died from 13 stab wounds to her neck which she mercilessly received after Griffiths strangled her with his bare hands. After murdering our gorgeous Ellie, he then proceeded to leave her alone on her family dining room floor for her family to find. For such an inhumane act, Griffiths received the minimum sentence he could have got -12 years 6 months’
We believe it is more important than ever that self-defence is part of the school curriculum.
We all have the right to defend ourselves.
