Chester Borrows: Caught in a cycle of abuse There is a direct correlation between some offenders and the abuse they endured.

“We need to recognise that while some victims have protective factors around them like strong, loving, nurturing families, good role modelling and healthy relationships, other victims are inundated with risk factors.” This isn’t a ‘here are the answers’ read, and it’s definitely not one of excuses. It’s a reminder there are often more questions to ask and more backstory to some of these outcomes we see. The first step to any solution is knowing what the actual problem is. I’m not sure we always see that.
