  1. Public Awareness Campaign "YOUR SILENCE FEEDS THE VIOLENCE"




Cosc has copies available of the A4 posters from the Public Awareness Campaign "YOUR SILENCE FEEDS THE VIOLENCE" and invites organisations who would like to order copies of the A4 posters to email Caroline Fitzpatrick at giving reference details of the poster(s) and the number required. 

The public awareness campaign aims to:- (i) raise awareness in the community around the victim that they (i.e. the member of the community) play an important role in the continuation or cessation of these crimes; (ii) inform the community on how to take safe and appropriate action; and (iii) increase awareness of the availability of services.  A significant benefit of the methodology behind the campaign is that a common message is delivered nationally while at the same time information is provided on local services.

Cosc has copies of three of the posters available for distribution - kitchen, bedroom and stairway scenes.  The posters include a blank area to allow for the inclusion of local service details.  To view copies of the posters please click on the following link:
