During the 16 Days of Activism, SignHealth is standing up to violence against all women and girls.

Domestic Abuse does not look the same for everyone. It is experienced in different ways by different people and that includes Deaf people.

Our domestic abuse team will be hosting different events to educate health professionals and the Deaf community about gender-based violence.    

SignHealth is also partnering with the White Ribbon campaign calling on all men to make the promise and play a part in ending violence against women and girls.

We are here to help you identify abuse and know how to get support or help someone who is an abusive relationship. Knowledge is power.

Check the full programme and join us for this important campaign.

All Men Can

SignHealth is also supporting the #AllMenCan campaign to end male violence against all women and girls.

Did you know that two women are killed each week by a current or former partner in England and Wales?

Did you know that disabled women and children are twice as likely to experience domestic abuse?

It must stop.

All men can make a difference and create a safer future for women and girls. Join us in this important campaign by making the promise and encouraging those around you to do the same.

A special thanks to Deaf dancer, choreographer and creative director Chris Fonseca for helping us share this message that all men can.

YPVA Takeover Day

As part of our 16 days agenda, SignHealth’s YPVA team has taken over our Instagram page to share some exclusive content about gender-based violence, with interesting conversations, short scenarios and lots of information in BSL for young deaf women and girls.

The topics covered during the takeover day included sexting, forced marriage, coercive control, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and bullying in the young LGBTQ+ Deaf community.

SignHealth invites Deaf survivors to Parliament
