thank you for taking an interest in our programme

The immersive nature of the Antser Virtual Reality (VR) programme allows the user to experience the impact of trauma, abuse and neglect through the eyes of the child. Our established programme is a clinically-led, technology enabled behaviour change tool. 

Born out of first-hand experience of the social care system, this powerful approach quickly and effectively delivers the knowledge, understanding and empathy that otherwise can take years to develop.

"Powerful as ever"

Proximity is a key driver for empathy. Our VR Programme closely follows the lives of children and young people from pre-birth to adolescence as they experience trauma, abuse and neglect, placing the user at the heart of their experiences through a series of VR immersive films. 

“We will continue to explore how this technology can be used to reduce domestic abuse in Redbridge and improve the lives of children and young people.”

Following the successful use of VR to increase empathy and perspectives in adoption and fostering, more recently we have piloted the impact of virtual reality technology in interventions used by Children’s Services with perpetrators and survivors of DA to understand its impact and effectiveness for changing attitudes and behaviours.

The report, conducted independently by Goldmiths University shows the outcomes of using VR with perpetrators of Domestic Abuse within the London Borough of Redbridge.
