In November, the 16 Days of Activism emphasises that everyone has a role to play in eliminating gender-based violence.
With the fantastic support of the Mayor of London’s Violence Reduction Unit we continue to roll out our It Is That Deep programme within schools but there are also many wonderful organisations leading the charge and helping women of all ages.
Here are four organisations which we’d like to spotlight:
- The Global Fund for Women is committed to fighting for gender equality, standing up for human rights, and advocating for women’s bold, resilient voices worldwide.
- Pandora Project – established in 2013 provides emotional and practical support to women affected by domestic abuse. They quickly expanded to work with children and young people as they are truly the hidden victims in abusive households. They run a recovery programme called Open The Box which looks at understanding the many forms of domestic abuse whilst building confidence and self-esteem which is crucial to recovery.
- Amour Destiné, aims to Unite, Inspire and Empower women and girls to create their own destiny. They help women affected by traumatic care experiences, cultural harmful practices, domestic abuse and/or sexual violence.
- Good Night Our campaign – The Good Night Out believes nights out should be about fun and freedom, not fear. Their mission is to create safer and more accountable music, arts and cultural spaces. Through their accreditation programme and specialist training they educate people and places to better understand, respond and prevent sexual violence in their spaces.
These organisations offer resources and tools to help survivors rebuild their lives, please click on their links to find out more. And to find out more about our educational in-school sexual harassment programme called ‘It is That Deep’ click here.
