Adding our support to the sexual abuse and sexual violence awareness week campaign

You can talk to us, call Safe Link on  0333 323 1543 or click here… Sexual abuse and sexual violence awareness week is 6th – 12th February. We don’t talk about sexual abuse enough. That’s not ok. The awareness week was established to give an opportunity for the general public, statutory and third sector organisations to participate in a discussion about sexual abuse and sexual violence. During the week people raise awareness about sexual abuse and sexual violence and how to prevent it in the UK.

Our annual candle lit vigil generated an increase in women seeking help.

Thanks to everyone who supported our candle lit vigil to mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. We have held this event for 18 years and each year it has generated an increase in women seeking help.

Standing together in solidarity for International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

We supported our Soroptimist Colleagues on their march from Temple Meads to the Lord Mayors Chapel at the bottom of Park Street.
