Uber Joins UK SAYS NO MORE In Tackling Sexual Violence

We’ve partnered with Uber as part of their ongoing commitment to drive change and help us end domestic abuse and sexual violence. Using their national platform and our expertise, we’re working to make sure all drivers and riders are informed and aware, and that safety is paramount. We’re proud to partner with Uber and share this new educational video about preventing sexual violence.

A word from Uber:

Domestic abuse and sexual violence can impact anyone. Last year alone, it is estimated that more than 1.9 million adults experienced domestic abuse and 648,000 were victims of sexual assault in England and Wales.

It can happen anywhere, and at any time. Day or night, in homes, workplaces, when travelling, and even in shared public spaces. Statistics show that women are more likely to experience domestic abuse or sexual violence than men, but anyone can be a victim.

That’s why we’re proud to be supporting UK SAYS NO MORE – a national campaign to raise awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault.

We have joined individuals, communities, businesses and charities across the UK to ask #WhatICanDo and build the conversation on domestic abuse and sexual violence. We’ve also been raising awareness through events, social media and communicating directly with people using our app.

Together, we hope to shine a light on this issue and work to reduce the number of people affected.

Working with Hestia and UK SAYS NO MORE, we’ve also produced a short video providing information about domestic abuse and sexual violence. The video contains advice about how people can support potential victims and gives information on ensuring that everyone who uses Uber feels safe and comfortable throughout a journey.

This is part of our global commitment to use Uber’s scope and visibility to drive awareness, education, and prevention of sexual assault and domestic violence. In time, we hope to play our role in eradicating incidents across all sections of society.

How To Help Cards in Every Uber Hub

Our partnership with Uber UK extends beyond an educational video and a pledge to make a difference, however. Taking action into their own hands, Uber will be placing our exclusive ‘How I Can Help’ cards in every Uber UK hub. Information on how Uber drivers and other staff can assist those affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence will be readily available, providing an additional place for survivors to access the resources they need to seek help.
