  1. Cosc extend public awareness campaign

In  September/October 2009 an extension of the Public Awareness campaign 'YOUR SILENCE FEEDS THE VIOLENCE' will take place.  Working with our partner organisations, Cosc has arranged for the printing of A4 size versions of campaign posters to be distributed nationwide to increase awareness of domestic and sexual violence and the availability of services. RAPE CRISIS NETWORK IRELAND (RCNI) and SAFE IRELAND will distribute posters through their network of local NGOs to a range of locations aimed at reaching a wide range of the public.  Amen will be the main distributor of the Domestic Abuse against Men poster.  Locations earmarked for posters include Garda stations, Health centres, GP clinics and similar locations.  The central theme of the campaign is the appeal to all who read the posters that the community around the victim play an important role in the continuation or cessation of these crimes.
