Police Scotland have this week launched “16 Days of Action against Gender Based Violence” to coincide with International Day for the Eradication of Violence Against Women.

Barrhead Housing Association fully supports this campaign, which uses a series of simple messages to challenge myths, raise awareness and direct people to appropriate support services.

For each of the 16 days, Police Scotland will share unique messages from the campaign to help infom discussions and banish any doubt about the forms of abuse which take place, and the excuses abusers use to try to excuse their actions.

You can follow this campaign below.
