Domestic Abuse Poster Campaign Launched

Safer will be displaying posters in Guernsey pubs that will give victims access to the charity's website.

The charity will be putting up the posters in Liberation Group and Randalls pubs that will feature a QR code which victims can scan on their phones.

Safer chair Fiona Naftel says they believe that all forms of domestic abuse are unacceptable:

"One of the rules of Safer is to shine a spotlight on all areas of domestic abuse and give access to our services to people who might not have it for various reasons. Hopefully the QR code will give them access to our services at a time convenient to them."

Fiona says pubs are an ideal setting for the posters:

"Alcohol is not a full contributor to the problem but it is certainly one of them and it does heighten it. So it's another access point for us to get the message out, to get people help. Sometimes people do not have access at home because they are in an abusive relationship so while they are out and they can access it, that's another opportunity.

"What we've got to remember is that in Guernsey the statistics are one in three women and one in six men will suffer from some form of domestic abuse in their lifetime. The greater awareness we can raise of the services available means more people could contact us."

The posters will be put up in pub toilets.
