Inform Women, Transform Lives
Call 999 or go to your local police station for immediate help if you or someone else is in danger or a crime is in progress. Call 101 for non-emergency advice from the police.
The Inform Women, Transform Lives campaign provides information about an important, and often hidden, issue that affects thousands of women and girls in Birmingham - domestic abuse.
We are proud to partner with The Carter Center on this campaign aimed at ensuring women have equal access to information to help enable and empower them.
Women are often in need of information and advice but are the least likely to seek it. This could be for many reasons. We are working with The Carter Center to raise awareness and provide easy access to information.
The Carter Center helps to improve lives through its international work. Birmingham was successful in joining this campaign alongside a number of other cities across the world including Bogota, Casablanca, and Dhaka North.
What is domestic abuse?
Domestic abuse can mean any kind of violent, threatening or controlling behaviour between people in a relationship. The abuse can be from a partner, ex-partner or a family member and it can happen to anyone.
If you are being abused, get help immediately. The abuse is never your fault. Never be afraid to ask for help and support.
We are here to help. You can find specialist support on our web pages.
- Get help for women who are experiencing domestic abuse
- Get help for women who are survivors of sexual violence and abuse
