Today actor Ian Bartholomew, who plays domestic violence author Geoff Metcalfe in Coronation Street, released the songThis time is forever,and accompanying music video,to raise vital funds for the domestic violence charity Womens Aid.

Onscreen, Ian is part of a coercive control storyline, where his character Geoff Metcalfe manipulates and controls his wife Yasmeen.

After recording the song, Ian’s wife, theater director Loveday Ingram, worked with Womens Aid to create a music video featuring videos, images and real-life stories of domestic violence survivors.

The video features women who have survived domestic violence, including Women’s Aid Ambassadors Katie Piper and Charlie Webster, and Survivor Ambassadors Sadi Khan, Natalie Curtis and Saliha Rashid.

The song, This time is forever,was produced by James F Reynolds, who also produced songs for Paloma Faith,andJessie Jand The Vamps. The video was produced by Three Wise Monkeys with the sponsorship of the Steve Morgan Foundation.

Ian Bartholomew says

“A lot of research has been done on Geoff and Yasmeen’s script. Womens Aid has visited us at Coronation Street Studios on several occasions with survivors of domestic violence which had a huge impact on how we told the story.

I continued my research to try to understand why perpetrators of domestic violence behave the way they do. The more I discovered, the more I wanted to help bring this appalling crime to light. Especially since I found out that women across the country were asking for help from Womens Aid, many said it was because of what they were watching on their TV screens.

Teresa Parker, Communications Manager at Womens Aid, says

Ian and his wife Loveday have both become valued supporters of Womens Aid over the past year, and we thank them so much for this amazing song and video. We know from the messages we receive from survivors what a huge impact Geoff and Yasmeen Coronation Street’s script has on coercive control consciousness.When women who have watched the coercive control scenario tell us that after being in a relationship with their abusive partner for nearly five decades, they now seek help, it becomes clear that the violence awareness scenarios domestic can help change lives and save lives.

We thank Ian, Loveday and all the survivors who volunteered their time to appear in the music video,for making this possible. We hope people listen to and share this important song, and if they can, donate on the fundraising page.
