Violence against women and girls, in any form, has no place in our vision for a safe, strong, successful Scotland. It damages health and wellbeing, limits freedom and potential, and is a violation of the most fundamental human rights.

We campaign and raise awareness of Violence against women, hoping to create change in our communities.
