Orange Wolverhampton is our local awareness-raising campaign that is part of the United Nations' international 16 Days of Action to End Violence Against Women and Girls campaign.

 

The term Violence Against Women and Girls covers 5 specific violent crimes for which the vast majority of victims are female. These 5 crimes are:

However, it cannot be over-emphasised that both locally and nationally all organisations and services recognise that there are female and male victims and perpetrators, and that support is available for women, men, girls and boys.

Key campaign messages are:

  • Wolverhampton says 'NO' to all Violence Against Women and Girls
  • Organisations work very closely together to reduce the prevalence of these forms of violence and to support all those affected by them, including children
  • There is help and support available to anyone affected by these issues
  • Visit www.wolverhamptonsafeguarding.org.uk to find out about the help and support available

Toilet Door Campaign poster - This poster outlines the help and support available around the 5 crimes that make up the 'Violence Against Women and Girls' agenda.

It has been produced specifically for use in female toilets, and particularly on the inside of toilet doors. This is so that details of the help and support available can be seen and noted without others watching. In the privacy of the toilet cubicle, women and girls will have the space to absorb the information and note down the help details in some way (e.g. taking a photo on a mobile if they have one).

CONSENT VIDEOS

These two videos are excellent at explaining consent in an accessible, funny and yet impacting way. They really get people of all ages (adults, young people and children) to think and talk about consent.

If you are working with, or parents of, children of primary school age, you may want to check out both videos to see which is most suitable for the children you want to talk to about consent.
