The 16 Days of Action campaign to raise awareness of gendered violence has seen some fantastic work across the region.

In the first WMWA Blog post, our very own CEO, Jan Frances, explains why campaigns such as 16 Days are so important.

Tackling Domestic Abuse is a priority for the Worcestershire partnership. We know that 1:4 women and 1:6 men will at some time during their lifetime experience domestic abuse. As gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, you are no different. The problem is, we are not getting reports from the LGB&T community, which in turn prevents us from supporting you.

Sunday 25th November is the International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women, and begins 16 Days of Action to end violence against women and girls. Domestic abuse support agencies working in partnership across the West Mercia region will be co-ordinating a number of activities and awareness raising events as part of this, and members of the public can get involved too.

West Mercia Women's Aid has been recruited by the Worcestershire Youth Cabinet to take part in the Children's Commissioner's 'Takeover Day' on Friday 23rd November, and your organisation can get involved too.

With the Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC) Elections being held on November 15th, West Mercia Women's Aid and West Mercia Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre joined the University of Worcester to host a hustings event with the three candidates.
