International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

We stand together against gender-based violence

Friday 25th November is the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and the start of their 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence campaign. This year’s theme is ‘UNITE! Activism to end violence against women and girls’ and invites everyone to play their role in ending violence against women and girls. 

For the next 16 days, we’re going to talk about how to spot the warning signs of an abusive relationship, real-life stories from people we support, poetry written by the women in our Ruby@Turnaround service, and advice and support from our staff.   

How to get support

Our Ruby@Turnaround team support women who have been through the criminal justice system, women with mental health needs, substance issues, homelessness or are involved with Children’s Services. 

Ruby@Turnaround is a domestic abuse service that supports women in Liverpool, St Helens, Knowsley and Sefton to make positive choices that are right for them.

We provide specialist planned and crisis support to women who are experiencing domestic abuse. Our team can support women of all levels of risk in a safe and women-only space. 

If this sounds like you and you’re in Liverpool, get in touch with our Ruby team for support.
