Anti-abuse campaign grant

SOROPTIMIST International of Harrogate and District has been awarded a grant to further a campaign to alert children, young people and women to their right to be free from abusive relationships.

The grant, from Harrogate District Community Safety Partnership, will continue the group’s campaign, which has seen bookmarks baring the phrase “Loves me, loves me not” distributed throughout Yorskhire and will now see posters in children’s and young people’s services in the Harrogate district as well as areas visited by the general public.

Like the bookmarks, the posters will highlight contact details for organisations that provide support to people who find themselves in abusive relationships.
