Blooming Strong Campaign 2017

We would love for your agency and local VAWG services to join us in this nationwide campaign, which celebrates how Blooming Strong women are.

November 25th every year marks the United Nations day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. At Standing Together Against Domestic Violence, we use this time of year to celebrate the strength of women who have survived gender based violence, or supported someone who has.

Since 2014 we have run this campaign and it grows every year. The idea is to encourage women that they too have the strength to survive, leave, move forward and recover from gender based violence.  We have found this positive campaign very successful and would love for you to take part by obtaining a campaign pack.

Flowers - We celebrate the emotional strength & resilience of women by presenting a variety of women with a single flower - to those who are accessing services and working within services, to local women in leadership roles and to local women in the community. We believe this positive approach celebrates and recognises the strength of local women and will also demonstrate to women who are experiencing violence, how Blooming Strong they are!

Awards - Local services can nominate women for a Blooming Strong award (a flower) in recognition for overcoming the odds, or going the extra mile.

Coffee Morning Fundraiser – This year we have introduced the Blooming Strong Coffee morning (or Afternoon Tea!), where strong women get together to celebrate and raise funds for their chosen local VAWG service.

Please join us by developing your own local Blooming Strong campaign, which can include all or part of the elements above as well as selling Blooming Strong merchandise to raise further funds.  To receive a Blooming Strong Campaign Pack and/or Blooming Strong Coffee Morning Fundraiser Pack (small donation applies) contact admin@standingtogether.org.uk. We look forward to working together with you.
