The United Nations’ Orange the World campaign takes place annually over 16 days from 25 November until December 10th, which is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
HeadStart Wolverhampton is supporting Wolverhampton Safeguarding's local campaign to 'Orange Wolverhampton'. For full details of how you can help to support this incredibly important cause, visit the Wolverhampton Safeguarding website, where you will find a range of resources for visitors to read and use, including posters, images for sharing on social media, and lesson resources.
The key messages of the Orange Wolverhampton Campaign are:
- Wolverhampton says 'No' to all Violence Against Women and Girls
- Organisations should work very closely together to reduce the prevalence of these forms of violence and to support all those affected by them, including children
- There is help and support available to anyone affected by these issues

We're still hard at work adding content to the new platform on a wide range of emotional well-being and mental health issues, but we hope that the Orange Wolverhampton resources are a great starting point for exploring our new site!
Here's a quick introduction to the new site:
