6th February – 12th February 2023
What is Sexual Abuse & Sexual Violence Awareness Week and when does it happen?
Sexual Abuse & Sexual Violence Awareness Week is the UK’s national week to raise awareness of sexual abuse and violence and to provide an opportunity for any organisation or individual to engage in dialogue.
The Sexual Abuse & Sexual Violence Awareness Week occurs on the first full week of February. For 2023 that will take place from 6th to 12th February.
Why do we need a designated week?
For countless years many organisations working in the sector of sexual abuse & violence were investing time, resources and funding into developing brilliant campaigns that – we felt – were not getting far and wide enough to reach enough of the public. The campaigns we have seen have been so powerful and informative and they needed to be elevated.
