    One Essex housing association has launched a month-long awareness campaign focusing on domestic violence as it’s seen a 20% increase in the number of reports of abuse. Bow 3

    Greenfields Community Housing are encouraging staff, board members and tenants to wear white ribbons or dress in white throughout August to back its campaign, reports Inside Housing.

    The association is also working with two doctor’s surgeries to that victims are provided with contact details of people or organisations that can help them without their abusers finding out. Leaflets and posters have also been distributed to explain the different types of domestic abuse and organisations that can help victims confidentially.

    Greenfields saw a 20 per cent increase in reported domestic abuse incidents since running another campaign last year.

    James Martin, neighbourhood co-ordinator at Greenfields, said: “We want to make it clear to our residents that domestic abuse of any kind is unacceptable. Although we can’t stop it, we hope that by explaining what constitutes domestic abuse and providing ways for victims to seek help and support, we can help to reduce it.”
