No More Week 2024

This week we are saying No More to domestic abuse as part of an international campaign. 

No More Week 2024 is a chance come together to raise awareness of domestic abuse and sexual violence. It is dedicated to creating a culture of safety, respect, and equality in communities.  

Ensuring the police and partners tackle domestic abuse and sexual violence against women and girls is a key priority for the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Mark Shelford, in his Police and Crime Plan.

One of the important roles of the Office of the Police Crime Commissioner is to fund specialist support services for victims of these crimes. Here is a summary of those services:
