Bradford recognises International Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation

Each year on the 6th February, organisations worldwide come together to take a zero tolerance stance and acknowledge the brutality of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

Partners from across our region united in attending a conference at the City Hall. The Lord Mayor kindly welcomed all attendees, and the Deputy Mayor for West Yorkshire Alison Lowe kindly gave an introduction to the event. She noted that:‘Collectively and actively, we need to take responsibility to start and continue conversations regarding this violation of human rights, whilst also acknowledging the effect it so tragically has on the health and integrity of women and girls’.

Just Don’t

86% of young women in the UK have experienced sexual harassment in public. We’re urging everybody to be an ally, step up, call it out and help stop it.

Intensive Care

As part of our Co-production commitment, we work with victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence. They asked us to help break the myth that victims are often seen as ill-educated; unskilled; unemployed and live in poor housing. This simply isn’t true for as we know, abuse can happen to anyone.

In response, we produced ‘Intensive Care’ – the true story of a professional senior nurse working in a Bradford hospital. Skilled, employed, independent… a victim.


Knock Knock

Knock Knock is the powerful story of one woman’s experience of a physically and psychologically abusive relationship, and how she finally got out and rebuilt her life.


Home Sick

Home Sick tells the story which sadly so many women face, of a life of servitude, abuse and loneliness, all in a foreign country.


Alarm Bells

Our film Alarm Bells is a stark reminder that victims of domestic abuse can also be male, and that psychological abuse is just as damaging as physical abuse. Watch Alarm Bells, which tells the story of one man’s struggle within an abusive relationship, from the perspective of his friend.
