Let’s ‘unite’ to prevent violence against women and girls.

As part of our commitment to supporting women and girls Trevi, Plymouth City Council, the NSPCC, Devon & Cornwall Police, First Light, M.A.N Culture Plymouth, Ahimsa, Sanctuary Supported Living and the Plymouth NHS Trust have come together to raise awareness of the importance of 16 Days of Activism against gender violence and how communities can play a part.

We are united in wanting to make Plymouth a city free from violence against women and girls and to be a place where all communities can take an active role in making it safe for everyone.
