UK SAYS NO MORE is a national campaign to raise awareness to end domestic abuse and sexual violence across the UK.
The campaign provides open-source tools and resources for individuals and organisations to take action and get involved in making a difference. It has been active in raising awareness through 16 Days 16 Films and through influencing the Domestic Abuse Bill. During 2020 it also mobilised the Safe Spaces initiative in partnership with pharmacies across the UK, providing a safe haven for those fleeing domestic abuse during the pandemic.
