16 days of action
One in four women and one in six men experience domestic violence or abuse at some point in their life. And many of them will have some contact with a faith community.
The period we are currently in – 25 November to 10 December – forms 16 days of activism to eliminate violence against women and girls. There’s also a 16 Days of Action campaign to encourage workplaces do more to help their employees who endure domestic violence, train those who witness it, and to protect staff as a whole.
If you belong to a faith community, whatever the faith, we have resources that can help you. From films of faith leaders talking about domestic violence to a booklet full of useful advice and links to organisations offering practical help, we have tools to support faith groups.
