On this International Day of the Girl, Women’s Aid is delighted to welcome long-time supporter of its work and tireless campaigner, Katie Piper, as its newest charity Ambassador.
Nicki Norman, acting chief executive at Women’s Aid, said
“On the International Day of the Girl, we are so excited to welcome Katie Piper as an Ambassador for Women’s Aid. As a long-time supporter of our work and a tireless campaigner and activist, we look forward to working with Katie to raise awareness of the countless women and girls surviving domestic abuse or recovering from the trauma of domestic abuse. We extend our huge thanks to Katie for her continued commitment to empowering survivors of abuse.”
TV presenter, author and campaigner, Katie Piper said
“I am delighted to become an Ambassador for Women’s Aid as I believe passionately that all women and girls deserve to live a life free from fear and abuse. I’m here to stand with survivors and build a future where domestic abuse is no longer tolerated. Under the theme of My Voice, Our Equal Future, one of the key focuses of this International Day of the Girl is the demand from adolescent girls across the world to be able to live free from gender-based violence. As a Women’s Aid Ambassador, I support its work towards this goal, including its Love Respect project which provides young people with all the information they need to recognise unhealthy behaviour in relationships and give them the tools and support to know what to do about it.
Whether you are worried about your own relationship or a friend’s you can get information and support from Women’s Aid and find out what a healthy relationship looks like. I hope you will join me in supporting Women’s Aid to help make International Day of the Girl 2020 a day that makes a difference.”
Women’s Aid wants to empower girls and young women to recognise abusive behaviour, and what is unhealthy and healthy in relationships. For more information, visit Love Respect which features a relationship health check, survivor stories and practical advice for young people.
