Campaign with us
We use our campaigning to give a voice to survivors of domestic abuse and to influence real policy change. All of our campaigning work is influenced by what survivors and services tell us they want to see change.
Support from survivors of domestic abuse, organisations and the public is vital to ensure our campaigns achieve success.
Our current campaigns
Hear Her, See Her, Support Her – General Election 2017
A ‘snap’ General Election will be held on 8 June 2017. Campaign Champions now have an important opportunity to get your voice heard, and influence ‘Prospective Parliamentary Candidates’ (PPCs) – the individuals hoping to be elected as future Members of Parliament (MPs).
Women’s Aid is calling for the next Government to ‘Hear Her, See Her, Support Her’ – to listen to the changes that survivors are calling for, end the postcode lottery response to domestic abuse, and support women and children fleeing abuse to escape to safety with a new funding system for refuges. Campaign Champions can take action ahead of the General Election by ensuring that local candidates back the “Hear Her, See Her, Support Her” pledge:
- Download our election pledge, and call for your PPCs to ‘Hear Her, See Her, Support Her’
- Download a template letter to send to PPCs
- Download our election briefing, which gives you lots of helpful tips on how to contact your candidates and campaign during the General Election.
Thank you for your support!
