Watch a video of our Blooming Strong Campaign in Hammersmith here:
Women in Hammersmith were handed flowers on 26th November to mark a global day of action against Domestic Violence.
The Blooming Strong Campaign saw London's first Victims' Commissioner join charity workers, in an attempt to remind others of the support and services out there to help them.

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.
Dr. Gail Dines spoke at this great event which provided insight, information, solutions, and a passion for building a healthy generation of kids.
It's a hard time to be a child. Teens today are bombarded with difficult and ever-changing sexual messages. As a result, it has never been more challenging to parent or mentor kids into healthy adulthood.
As their access to technology widens, young people internalize sexualized messaging which affects their behavior, attitudes, expectations, brain development, and undermines their capacity to build healthy relationships.
Domestic abuse is a significant health issue. In recent years the health response to domestic abuse has become critical to an effective, coordinated response. Best practice guidance and recommendations have targeted health in terms of understanding risk and information sharing. In practice we know that doctors face significant challenges and sometimes conflicting guidance about information sharing and patient confidentiality especially as it relates to adults with capacity where children are not involved.
Blooming Strong Campaign.....We will be celebrating how Blooming Strong women are by handing out flowers today in three London Boroughs.

Standing Together Against Domestic Violence would like to announce the completion of our Domestic Homicide Review (DHR) Case Analysis Report authored by Nicola Sharp-Jeffs and Liz Kelly.
Our CEO, Nicole Jacobs, states in her opening letter:
“The sisters, mothers, daughters, sons and brothers who have been murdered at the hands of their current/former partners or family members are at the heart of this report. It is in their memory that we feel compelled to learn as much as we can from their tragic experience….
On 24th April Councillor Lisa Homan ran the London Marathon to raise money for Standing Together. Not only did finish without any blisters, she also wildly exceeded her fundraising target!
Lisa, we are hugely grateful for your support.

We are thrilled to announce that HM Treasury has awarded Standing Together £311,000 to continue and progress our work with health trusts to idenitfy and respond to domestic abuse. The funding enables us to continue our local partnership work with mental health services and to build a national health alliance to support a network of operational experts to embed best practice into acute and mental health trusts.
