Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence Awareness Week - 23rd - 27th November

Monday 23rd November marks the first day of National Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week. This week provides an an opportunity to support for agencies and individuals to raise awareness by either wearing a purple ribbon, attending an event, using your email signature or displaying a poster in your local workplace.

'Can you put yourself into a victim's shoes?' is the theme this year and a series of powerful plays will be performed at a variety of locations all aimed at raising the awareness of the issues amongst professionals.  The availability at each event is limited so please follow the links on glostakeastand.com  to book your place on Eventbrite. The events are for professionals only and you will need to use this password to secure your place: BonfireNight5.

The glostakeastand.com provides valuable information and contacts about all types of violence and abuse.

On Wednesday the 25th November Gloucestershire Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre is holding a "Reclaim the Night" march.  The march takes place at night as a protest against victim-blaming which tells women to stay off the streets at night if they don't want to be at risk of sexual violence or harassment.  This Reclaim the Night flyer provides more information such as timings and the start and finish points of the march.

The GSCB champions a number of free e-learning packages which cover Domestic Abuse, FGM and Forced Marriage; more details can be found on our E-Learning pages as well as our two training courses Domestic Abuse - Awareness and Domestic Abuse - Impact on children & young people; details can be found on our Safeguarding Training, Development and Events pages.
