SAWN Against Domestic Violence

The Pandemic and Lockdowns in UK have exposed a huge number of cases of Spousal and Intimate Partner Violence aka DV.

 

Since the tragic death of Sarah Everard in March 2021, at least 81 UK women have allegedly been killed in circumstances where the suspect is a man – and two were from Oldham. We as SAWN stand strongly against Domestic Violence. And created the SAWN App that you can download from the Google PlayStore. And we encourage you to read the article in the “Oldham Times” about Ending Femicide. Click the button to access it

UK BME Anti-Slavery Network

SAWN is also part of The UK BME Anti-Slavery Network (BASNET) established by AFRUCA. The first network in the UK and in Europe dedicated to promoting equality, inclusion, and diversity in the anti-trafficking and anti-slavery space. According to the National Referral Mechanism, most UK child victims of modern slavery are children from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, yet until now, these communities weren’t involved in the anti-slavery space.
