Domestic Violence and Abuse

To help end domestic violence and abuse, City of Ryde runs a campaign each year centred around the United Nations’ 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. An annual international campaign that kicks off on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and ends on 10 December, Human Rights Day. 

Stay tuned for information on our 2022 16 Days of Activism.
