Not On My Campus UK, has launched a campaign to support domestic violence charities! Even though many of us are remaining safely at home, unfortunately for many others remaining at home can mean seeing increased levels of violence. In a single day since the implementation of quarantine, Refuge saw a 700% increase in calls. All over the world, quarantine has led to a rise in domestic violence levels with many more people dying as a result.
For this campaign, draw out an outline of their hand, with a large heart in the centre and #YouAreNotAlone underneath, with the heading YOU ARE NOT ALONE and the sentence “National Domestic Abuse Helpline: 0808 2000 247”. People taking part could have their picture taken with the sign, or just the sign if they don’t feel comfortable otherwise, and then post this online on various social media apps using the hashtag. For those who were able, we encourage ‘Donate 5, Tag 5’ to be included on their post, with the donations going to a charity, working to support survivors of domestic abuse. These signs could then be placed in their window as a sign of solidarity for anyone walking past. Swipe to see a suggested list of charities to donate to!
