16 Days of Action Against Violence
Tackling domestic abuse in Gloucestershire
Thursday 25 November marks the beginning of 16 days of action against domestic violence, and to support the campaign, Gloucestershire’s domestic abuse partnership board is launching Gloucestershire’s new strategy which outlines how organisations will work together to tackle domestic abuse in the county.
In Gloucestershire 38% of violent offences reported to the police are domestic abuse and 78% of victims are female.
The 25 November is also the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and in support; organisations will be highlighting the issue of violence against women and girls and displaying the campaign banner on social media. Please help raise awareness of these issues by sharing our social media.
You can support the campaign by sharing a photo of yourself on social media, wearing orange or posing with our sign. Share your photos with us by tagging @GlosCC and using #GlosIDEVAW.
Over the 16 days (25 November – 10 December), organisations across the county will be sharing information on the support available to victims and their families.
