WOMEN'S Aid will today be holding a drop-in session to round off their 16 days of action against gender-based violence campaign.

Members of the Clackmannanshire charity will be based in the Spiers Centre at 10am and 11.30am on Wednesday, December 7 and at 11-1pm on Thursday, December 8.

This forms part of their activism during the 16 days campaign run by Women’s Aid charities across the country.

Nicole Ironside, volunteer for Women’s Aid, told the Advertiser the campaign aims to ensure no woman in Clackmannanshire is without help.

She said: “We’re hoping to bring some awareness around gender based violence and offering woman services if they need to have a chat or some extra support.

“We liaise with some other charities such as RapeCrisis, Shakti so we’re wanting to raise awareness for all these tools and let people know that Clackmannanshire Women’s Aid is in the community.

“We want women to know that if they need us, they’ve got us for emotional support and even a refuge centre if they need it too.”

The Clacks group have been running various events through the month including prevention sessions held in schools to educate pupils about domestic violence.

“Our Children and Young Person Team are based in primary and high schools supporting children who are affected by domestic abuse.

“Our stand and leaflets will be staying at the Spiers Centre so if anybody feels they need help, the materials are there with numbers for people to call.”
