Welcome

A huge welcome to the The Emily Davison Centres website. The EDC is the first Ending Violence Against Women and Girls (EVAWG) HUB in the U.K. It is a 7000 square foot new build and is currently home to 5 specialist charities.

The concept is simple, when a women or girl experiences violence, abuse and/or exploitation, many areas of their lives can be negatively impacted. It makes sense then to have all services under one roof, where individuals can access support when they need it, reducing the risk of escalation and serious harm.

At the EDC we are committed to providing the highest quality of service, Our specialist teams at the centre are not only experienced but understand the complexity and intersectionality of individuals and families situations. This is why our services are built in partnership with women who have lived experiences of abuse.

In addition to specialist services we also provide training and conference facilities, we can cater for up to 100 people. In addition to a clean, modern and well equipped environment we also provide catering to meet any budget. Why not consider hiring our venue as part of your social responsibility framework, safe in the knowledge that any profit made at the centre goes directly back into the provision of frontline services.

Take a look around our website and please do contact us if you have any questions, observations or need support.

This is just not right ………RIP Semina Absolutely heartbroken and enraged to read about her death from her mother. Semina was 12 years old when she took her life last week after being raped by a boy at school in the UK. Her mother has posted that her daughter and her family were harassed and threatened when she disclosed the rape. Her daughter died a slow death which took days. She had multiple heart attacks and was then placed in an induced coma. Her mum, Rachel, has said that the last thing she said before being put into a coma at Alder Hey hospital is the name of the rapist. I’m absolutely devastated to read this. I have reached out to her mum to see if there is anything I can do to help. ...

Thoughts on this ??We have launched a pilot scheme in the City of Manchester for Restorative Justice (RJ) referrals to be made for domestic abuse cases. RJ gives victims and offenders the chance to communicate in a positive way, giving victims a sense of empowerment and voice, and allowing offenders to take responsibility for their actions.Read more: crowd.in/0gQww3 ...

An excellent example of a letter sent to a local MP. We are writing as concerned constituents about events of the last week and the kidnap and murder of Sarah Everard. As women who live and work in ........... and the surrounding areas, we are writing to you because we can no longer accept the status quo and want to see real change for all who are affected by male violence. Sarah’s murder has rightly ignited women’s fury and distress that in 2021, we are still having to restrict and adapt our lives to avoid men’s violence towards us. Every three days a woman dies at the hands of a man. Six women and a girl have been murdered since Sarah Everard was kidnapped. A report by the Guardian highlighted that almost all young women have experienced harassment by men. Domestic abuse and childhood sexual abuse blights the lives of far too many women and children in .............. and across the world. The short and long term impacts of violence and abuse are well documented. We can and must all do better to end male violence. I call on you as my MP to make ................. safe for all women and girls and in doing so request that you highlight the need for:Women’s organisations to be properly supported and funded to meet the self-identified needs of women, including access to practical mental health support and trauma-informed services that can support women in the short and longer termWomen’s organisations and women to be consulted about their needs and lived experiences in order to identify and address those needsThe right to protest to be protected so that women can have their voices heard about the issues of most importance to themThe inclusion of misogyny as a hate crime to ensure that women can feel confident and safe to report crimes against themThe government to increase conviction rates and sentencing for domestic and sexual abuse including rapeMost of all we need concerted, committed cross party leadership and political will to challenge the idea that male violence is inevitable. It is not. Successful public health campaigns have made smoking and drink driving socially unacceptable and there is no reason why the same could not be done for male violence. I appreciate you taking the time to read this letter and hope that you will seriously consider the issues I have raised. I look forward to hearing from you, Yours faithfully, ...

So which occupation has the highest rate of perpetrating abuse against women? That would be police officers. Studies have found that a minimum of 40 percent of families of officers have experienced some type of domestic violence. This can include anything from harassment and stalking to murder. ...
