For our second post we would like to highlight the 2017/18 SafeLives Impact Report as our ethos strongly compliments their aims. At VOICES, like at SafeLives, we believe in listening to survivors – we are a platform which enables the voices of victims and survivors to inform and improve service provision, in response to their needs.
For day twelve, we’d like to highlight an article written for The Guardian and published earlier in December. Patrick Stewart, David Challen and the Hart brothers are challenging the idea that domestic abuse is only a women’s issue – click here to read the article.
For our fifteenth post, we’d like to highlight the Bath University #NeverOk campaign. As a Bath based charity we not only support local residents but also students who live in our city. With this in mind we want to work closely with both of our local universities to ensure the right support is available to everyone affected by domestic abuse.
For our sixteenth and final post of the 16 days of activism Fatima, a VOICES Trustee and human rights campaigner, describes what makes VOICES a safe space to explore difficult themes. Click here to read the blog post.
