In the UK, an estimated 4.5 million women and 2.2 million men have experienced domestic abuse since the age of 16, and nearly half a million adults are sexually assaulted in England and Wales each year (ONS). Domestic violence and sexual assault can affect anyone, of any age, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity or religion.
During UK SAYS NO MORE Week (May 15th-21st 2017) we invite you to join us and others nationwide who are saying “NO MORE”. The theme of this year’s week of activism is #TogetherWeCan – as it is only by working together that we can begin to make real change.
We can all make a difference when it comes to ending domestic violence and sexual assault. Let’s unite during UK SAYS NO MORE Week and take action!
Download the UK SAYS NO MORE Week Guide for inspiration, activity ideas, plus downloadable images to make a statement on social media.
Here are the three key action areas of the week:
TALK: Let’s end the silence around these issues and say “NO MORE” to the excuses so often made. We can start conversations and spread vital awareness and resources.
ACT: Set up an event to raise awareness during UK SAYS NO MORE Week (no matter how small!).
GIVE: Whether money or time, you can make a huge difference by donating to a non-profit organisation, enabling them to continue their work year-round.
