The 25th November is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. It also kick started our 16 Days of Activism Campaign.

Up until the 10th December, we uploaded a new article each day discussing topics relating to violence against women, from media coverage to warning signs.

The aim of this campaign is not only to increase awareness, but also to change the narrative around gender-based violence. To fight a problem, we must first understand it.

Please remember that if you are experiencing any type of violence or abuse, you can contact our free, confidential helpline on 0800 019 8818 to speak with a specialist female caseworker. We’re here no matter what you need support with, whether it’s coping with trauma, mental health, finances, housing, families and relationships or anything else.

Don’t want to pick up the phone? That’s absolutely fine. You can also access our live chat by clicking on the orange button in the corner of the screen.
