Dr Alison Gregory, SPCR research fellow at the University of Bristol, is joint recipient of the Corinna Seith Award, presented to her by the organisation: Woman Against Violence Europe (WAVE).

Alison's SPCR funded PhD study on how domestic violence affects the friends and family members of the person in the abusive relationship formed the basis of the winning paper entitled ‘On the outside looking in: the shared burden of domestic violence’. She produced a booklet 'It might be nothing, but it could mean everything: a guide for people who think their friend, relative, neighbour or colleague may be in an abusive relationship' which is being distributed across Bristol.

I am delighted and honoured to receive this award for my PhD research which focusses on the impact domestic violence has on the friends and family members of survivors. It is wonderful to see the interest this work has generated and I am grateful to the NIHR School for Primary Care Research for investing in the research" - Alison Gregory
