6th – 12th February is Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week 2017
The prevalence of sexual abuse and violence is truly shocking, both at the global and national level:
Sadly there is still a huge amount of ignorance and denial around this area – what is particularly worrying is the continued, widespread culture of victims blaming.
This awareness week aims to empower those affected by sexual abuse and violence and to send out a clear message that there is absolutely no situation in which sexual abuse or violence are acceptable in any form.
At Localgiving we are proud to work alongside numerous charities and community groups that focus on these issues on a daily basis – supporting victims of sexual violence and raising awareness of these issues.
