What are Community Champions?
Community Champions play a key role in helping us spread the word about Honour Based Abuse, and about the support that exists for victims and survivors.
Raising awareness about Honour Based Abuse is vital, if we are to reduce the stigma that prevents victims from coming forward for help. We want all people affected to know about the services that are available, like our Honour Based Abuse Helpline.
Working in their local and online communities, our volunteer Community Champions are helping us achieve our ambitious strategic vision to end Honour Based Abuse in the UK.
What is involved?
Becoming a Community Champion will allow you to become involved in various activities that will help us end Honour Based Abuse. We are open to ideas you may have, but some examples of how you can get involved are by:
- Raising awareness and speaking about Honour Based Abuse with organisations that have contacted us
- Supporting one of our stands in your local area
- Using your online following to raise awareness and enlist support
- Handing out Helpline literature in your community
Community Champions interested in speaking at events will receive training and support, so they are knowledgeable and confident speaking out in the community, promoting our Helpline and making connections with frontline professionals.
