Violence against women is widespread affecting women of any age, class, race, religion, sexuality or ability. Women are most at risk from men they know. When asked, significant numbers of women describe patterns of abusive behaviour and repeat victimisation, rather than discrete assaults. Women experience violence at different points in their lives and significant numbers of women experience more than one type of violence.
This website aims to provide information on violence against women, where to get help and support and how you can support others affected. It also promotes local events held to raise awareness.
