16 Days of Action against Domestic Violence

16 Days of Action against Domestic Violence takes place from 25 November – 10 December. This event stems from the original movement, 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence, which started in 1991.

Sandyford Sexual Health Services provides specialised sexual health services across the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde area. Unfortunately, we still see many patients who experience domestic violence across our clinics.  This is why campaigns like 16 Days of Action against Domestic Violence are so important, as they raise awareness and encourage everyone to speak about Gender Based Violence. 

Sandyford has specialised services that support some of the most vulnerable population groups in Scotland - who are affected by violence at a disproportional rate.

Sandyford offers additional support to people who may find it difficult to access mainstream services. This might include people who are currently homeless or who have a physical or learning disability. Our Inclusion Team can help with advice or support. Please phone 01412118610 to speak to one of the team.
