'16 days of Action', is an international campaign that aims to raise awareness about violence as a human rights issue at a local, national and international level.
The 16 Days of Action Domestic & Sexual Abuse Awareness Campaign for 2014 takes place between 25th November and 10th December 2014. The theme for our campaign is 'This is Abuse'. The 'This is Abuse' campaign is aimed at preventing teenagers (13 to 18 year old boys and girls) from becoming victims and perpetrators of abusive relationships by encouraging them to re-think their views of controlling behaviour, violence, abuse, sexual abuse and what consent means within their relationships and directs them to places for help and advice. Further details can be found on the Home Office website.
Lisa Scott, Sexual Abuse Coordinator and Claire Churchley, Domestic Abuse Coordinator at Central Bedfordshire Council said "Sadly, domestic and sexual abuse goes on all over the world but we are using this international campaign to bring the issue to the forefront of people's minds across Bedfordshire.
"We're also hosting a quiz night and a cake sale to raise money for refuges in the local area and to fund valuable advisors that support victims of domestic abuse in Central Bedfordshire & Bedford Borough."
