Posted May, 2020

RISE is pleased to announce the launch of our first legislation change campaign. Find out more about what to expect.

RISE is pleased to announce that we will be launching our first legislation change campaign in mid-May. The campaign aims to help protect the safety and dignity of survivors whose cases have been taken to Magistrate's court.

Women are most at risk in the year after separating from their perpetrators (1), which is likely to coincide with the timing of a court case, making this the point at which they need protecting the most from harm.

Watch this space for more information on this campaign, as well as how you can support the campaign to ensure the best possible outcome for domestic abuse survivors.

Check back on our website, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter from the 19th of May to read more about the details of the campaign.
