Domestic violence campaign to visit King’s Lynn

Have your say

A campaign to tackle domestic violence will be spreading the message in Lynn tomorrow.

Events will be held the county as part of Norfolk Says No week, which finishes on Sunday.

Norfolk County Council is supporting the campaign, which aims to raise awareness of domestic violence and encourage people to speak out and seek help.

An estimated one in four women and one in six men have experienced domestic abuse in their lifetime, with women experiencing a far higher level of repeat incidents than men. Children who witness domestic violence are more likely to be victims of abuse themselves and their experiences can impact on learning.

A double decker one stop shop is in Lynn town centre from 9am to 2pm. There will be a pledge wall and a hand printing activity for children called “These hands are not for hurting.”
