Notting Hill Genesis is supporting an international campaign to challenge abuse against women and girls.
16 Days of Activism runs every year from 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, and aims to raise awareness of the onset of gender-based violence, challenge attitudes, reflect on healthy relationships and the role that men need to play in order to make a difference.
We want our residents to feel safe in their homes, their local communities and our extra care services, and to be protected from harm and abuse. Too many women continue to be victims of domestic, sexual, or honour-based violence.
Gender-based violence is epidemic and the importance of allyship is profound. Men, women, employers, friends, family, neighbours, and the wider community all play a key part in safeguarding women and girls from gender-based violence.
We're committed to doing what we can to safeguard the wellbeing of not just women but all those who work with our staff, benefit from our services and receive care from us.
For more information about how we can help to protect any residents that may be suffering from some form of abuse, please see our safeguarding page.
