Be Safe Be Strong Dissemination Event 22nd January 2013
Sunrise were given a grant by the Home Office to run a project which take an intergenerational approach to bringing about a cultural shift in gender relations particularly focusing on the Pakistani Muslim community in Banbury. We sought to do work to help break cycles of abuse and prevent its repetition into the next generation.
The work undertaken was delivered through activities and programs within our Saturday clubs, Adult classes and support through network meetings and 1:1 sessions. The project worked with x people.
This event is an opportunity to hear about the findings from the project, including the successes and challenged. There will also be a panel discussion on the topic of domestic abuse with a focus on the needs of the Banbury community.
Please feel free to pass details onto anyone you feel will benefit from this event.
Please confirm attendance by Friday the 18th January for catering purposes and indicate dietary requirements.
Happy New Year!!
