As part of No More Week, North Northamptonshire Council’s Safer Communities team will be at Rushden Lakes on Wednesday 8 March from 11am - 2pm to promote the campaign, which aims to increase awareness of domestic abuse and sexual abuse.

The 10th annual No More week runs from 5 - 12 March, coinciding with International Women’s Day on 8 March.

Alongside the stall at Rushden Lakes, the team will be working with partners across the week on a range of activities, including social media posts on the Safer Communities channels on a range of topics and promoting the support available, stalls at Tresham College campuses and promoting the Flare app (which allows women to report, anonymously and quickly any incidents or behaviour that makes them feel unsafe) online and at the Willow Place shopping centre, Corby.

In 2023, women and girls should feel safe in their homes and when out and about. Sadly, domestic and abuse is all too common, and this week is about making sure individuals are aware of the support that is available to them.Cllr Helen Harrison, NNC’s Executive Member for Adults, Health and Wellbeing
No More Week is an annual campaign, designed to raise awareness, but the work doesn’t stop there, and our teams work with organisations every day to support victims. I would urge anyone who needs help to come forward and speak to someone.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council
We hope that by supporting this campaign and having Officers from NNC at Rushden Lakes on Wednesday 8 March will help highlight the impact of domestic abuse and the impact it can have.Cllr Matt Binley, NNC’s Executive Member for Housing, Communities and Levelling Up

Launched in 2013, No More Week is an annual, international opportunity to come together to raise awareness of domestic abuse and sexual violence, inspiring individuals, organisations and communities to make change.
