Campaign Resources

THE 16 DAYS CAMPAIGN will only work with the support of people in local communities and other organisations nationwide. Each of us can make a difference and demand an end to violence against women.

Women’s Aid has pulled together a selection of online resources that may be useful if you would like to participate in or support the 16 Days Campaign.
