The Healing Journey – A nature based rehabilitation programme for female victims of domestic abuse.
This project proposes a series of safe and defensible private and public landscapes, designed to promote and support the healing process in female victims of domestic abuse. The designed journey through the four suggested sites will facilitate integration back into the local, and eventually wider, community for women and children who have become isolated as a result of an abusive relationship. The borough of Southwark houses a wealth of socio-economic issues including a deficiency of public accessible green space. Southwark also experiences a higher rate of reported domestic abuse cases over other London boroughs.
