Merton tackling domestic violence: information pages
Merton has become one of the first London boroughs to join a national campaign against domestic violence and sexual assault.
NO MORE began in America in March 2013. Launched as a unifying symbol to end Domestic Violence and Sexual Assaults it campaigns to engage communities to take a stand against these crimes.
In May 2016 NO MORE was launched in the UK. The campaign is overseen by Hestia, one of the leading third sector organisations working within these fields.
The Merton Council website has a set of information and advice pages for people who are affected by domestic violence: www2.merton.gov.uk/safermertondomesticviolence.htm. The pages cover the following:
- What is domestic violence.
- Reporting and investigation.
- The effect on children and young people.
- Support services for victims.
- Advice and information.
The pages also include information on 'how to use these pages safely'.
