Safe & sound, is helping to raise awareness that abuse is not OK this sexual abuse & sexual violence awareness week 6-12 February.
Sexual Abuse & Sexual Violence Awareness Week is the UK’s national week to raise awareness of sexual abuse and violence and to provide an opportunity for any organisation or individual to engage in dialogue.
Safe & Sound will be sharing messages throughout the week using #ItsNotOK, alongside Black Country Women’s Aid - an independent charity which supports survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence.
Find out more about sexual assault and abuse at safe & sound’s help hub or Black Country Women's Aid website.
International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM also takes place on 6 February. Did you know female genital mutilation is illegal in the UK? It’s illegal to take a British or permanent resident abroad for FGM or to help someone trying to do this. Find out more on safe & sound's help hub.
