Standing together against domestic violence

Our Ambition

Standing Together’s ambition is to eradicate domestic abuse by transforming the way organisations and individuals think about, prevent and respond to it.  Through partnership working, we aim to   end domestic abuse by safeguarding families and communities, changing damaging behaviours, securing justice for the vulnerable, and challenging inequalities.

The 112 Fundraiser Bike Ride 2015!

When: 6th June 2015

Where: Windsor Great Park

Start: From 8:30am

This is Standing Together’s largest annual fundraising event where we ask people across the UK to come together to cycle/jog and raise money to help us put an end to domestic abuse. This is our 7th year running this hugely successful event, where in 2013 we had 114 riders and raised £23,000! Come join us this year and help us grow even bigger and better! Visit our 112 blog which we regularly update with cycle news.

What’s it all for?

On average, 2 women a week are murdered as a result of domestic abuse in England and Wales. That is a total of 112 women killed a year.

By taking part in Standing Together’s 112, the money you raise will:

•  Improve the response to domestic abuse – from statutory frontline response, such as police and health professionals’ response, through to specialist frontline advocacy services.

•  Ensure that we hold perpetrators accountable through the criminal justice system and perpetrator programmes

•  Expand our body of research through survivor consultations. 

•  Help us to reduce the number of homicides that happen each year as a result of domestic abuse 

How you can participate!

To take part there is a small joining fee of £10 and in addition we ask that each participant raises a minimum of £112.

There are several ways you can participate. We want to make sure that you get the most out of the day so we have the following options available:

 

 

The Challenge Route

This is our flagship course – our most popular and most challenging route of the event. This is a 112km bike ride on a signed route. 

The Challenge sets out to highlight the prevalence of domestic abuse in our society. Each kilometre we ride is in remembrance of the women murdered by domestic abuse in the past year.

You will travel along a beautifully scenic path starting at Windsor Great Park, through Berkshire and Oxfordshire and then back into the Great Park.

 

The Roundabout: CYCLE

If you do not yet feel ready for The Challenge, fear not, we have other options to suit you!

The Roundabout: CYCLE is our 11.2 mile route. It starts at the same location as The Challenge Route, but then follows the cycle path around Windsor Great Park itself. This is a very beautiful ride, and a great one to do together with a group of friends.

 

 

The Roundabout: JOG

This year we have added the option to jog the 11.2 mile Roundabout Route in Windsor Great Park. This is great if you are training for a half-marathon, or even a full marathon! 

 

Bike Hire Available!

British Bike Hire will be hiring out bikes on the day. To hire a bike you need to contact Tony Houben from British Bike Hire prior to the 112. He will need to know your height and the route you are undertaking (Challenge or Roundabout) to select the best bike that fits your needs. Tony will bring the bikes to the Park on the day for you to collect.

Email: tony@britishbikehire.co.uk

Telephone: 01344 624 994 / 07720 631 482

 

The 112 is a really fun and sociable opportunity to train for any other upcoming sporting events, to get fit after the holiday’s excesses, or even just to set yourself a personal challenge to conquer. All whilst raising money for a good cause.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) launches with the aim of improving the housing sector's response to domestic abuse

The Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance’s (DAHA) mission is to improve the housing sector’s response to domestic abuse through the introduction and adoption of an established set of national domestic abuse service standards.

DAHA is a partnership between three agencies: Peabody, Standing Together Against Domestic Violence and Gentoo, who all have a longstanding commitment to tackling domestic abuse and sharing best practice.

For further information download DAHA leaflet or click here.

 

 

Standing Together

Standing Together Against Domestic Violence helps to reduce the huge social and economic cost of domestic violence in the UK. Each year, 112 women die as a result of domestic violence.

Our proven method supports organisations, including the police, criminal justice partners, social services, healthcare workers and charities, to identify and respond effectively together to domestic violence. Our ultimate aim is to help these agencies to work in partnership, so that people receive the best support at the time they need it.

Saving lives, increasing personal wellbeing, and reducing the enormous damage of violent crime far outweighs the cost of what we do.

The terms ‘domestic violence’ and ‘domestic abuse’ are both used in this website. Our usage of both terms reflects the language used by a range of agencies, but the message in both is that in intimate partner and family contexts, the terms abuse and violence include the full range of types of behaviour, physical or non-physical, used by one person to exercise power and control over another.
