Join the Standing Together Against Domestic Violence community
Established in 1998, Standing Together Against Domestic Violence coordinates
the ground-breaking multi-agency response to domestic violence. Standing
Together influences national policy and practice by initiating and driving
innovation, providing safer options for women and their children and holding
perpetrators accountable. Standing Together builds and supports effective
multi agency partnerships throughout the UK to meet the needs of survivors
of domestic violence.
Standing Together believes that that domestic violence is a serious and high
volume crime which no one agency can deal with effectively if acting alone.
It destroys families and damages society. The facts about domestic violence
are shocking and all communities, classes and ages are affected. 1 in 4
women experience domestic violence. Two women are murdered in the UK by
their current or former partner every week.
Standing Together trains all agencies to deal with domestic violence
effectively and consults with survivors to inform improvements in services.
