Our good friends at OAC have a message on their latest poster campaigns:
Our summer poster campaign aims to raise awareness of FGM and connect women and girls across the Thames Valley with frontline support services.
The campaign covers Oxfordshire, East Berkshire, West Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, reaching 4 of the UK’s 11 FGM hotspots. Posters will be displayed in bus stops, schools, GP surgeries, hospitals and community centres.
Our Chief Champion for West Berks, Chloe, has been her usual dynamic self and arranged more training events for her network.
If you need to sign up for the DA Awareness day (modules 1 & 2) the click on our Upcoming Trainingpage link to find out more.
If you are in West Berks and have completed or signed up for Mods 1&2 (DA Awareness Day), and have registered with us already and want to take the Champ day training, then please select one of the dates to drop us a line and we will add you to the list.
Here is news of an interesting theatre show playing in Oxford this week. Here is what was sent to us:
I work for a dance theatre company — we have a show called Smack That (a conversation) which is going to be at Oxford Playhouse next week. And I thought the show might be of interest to your staff and clients?
Please find below more information on dance theatre show 'Smack That (a conversation)' by Rhiannon Faith which will be at:
Oxford Playhouse, Burton Taylor Studio, Thursday 25 April 2019, 7.30pm
Our good friends and DA Champs at A2 Dominion want to share their initiative and ask for your vote to help secure some funding- here is a message from Luke:
A2 Dominion's Domestic Abuse service have been shortlisted for a “dragons’ den” style event for a chance to win a share of £100k, which we would use to increase our helpline and access service in West Berks.
The last few months has seen a veritable explosion in the number of trainers we now have across many of our areas. They are DA Champs and come from a wide variety of busy agencies but volunteer to help their area spread awareness of the issues around domestic abuse.
