Education & Public Awareness  

Working with schools, youth groups, local communities and even football clubs, we believe everyone can play a role in ending domestic abuse.

Come Together To End Domestic Abuse 

We know that domestic abuse is devastatingly common: 1.6 million women experience domestic abuse every year, though that’s only the tip of the iceberg, as so many women don’t report abuse due to fear or the worry they’ll be judged or not believed. With three women being killed a fortnight by a
current or ex-partner, so much needs to change before women are safe.

Come Together to End Domestic Abuse is the Women’s Aid 50th birthday campaign – the organisation will celebrate its 50th in 2024, and we are launching this year to demonstrate how we can make a difference if we come together across society and across communities to do what we can.

Current awareness raising campaigns

We want more people to understand to what domestic abuse is. Our public awareness raising campaigns aim to show that domestic abuse is a major social issue with a devastating impact. To learn more about our specific campaigns to change government policy, head to campaigning and influencing.
