Advocacy & Statements

Help and Shelter has advocated and continues to advocate for relevant legislative changes, including the Sexual Offences Act 2010, and for the removal of provisions allowing corporal punishment in the Education Bill.

We helped craft the National Domestic Violence Policy and are represented on the domestic violence and sexual offences task forces  and the task force to combat trafficking in persons.

We also regularly issue media statements in the form of letters to the press, particularly to mark International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
