Greystones Family Resource Centre in partnership with Bray Women's Refuge launched their Domestic Violence Public Awareness Raising Campaign on 25th November 2015 at Kilcoole Community Centre. 

The public awareness raising campaign is focused on the bystander.  It aims to encourage community members to examine their own role in responding to domestic violence as a crime and to let community members knoow how to take safe and appropriate action.  

The campaign is part of the global 16 Days of Action Against Gender Based Violence, which runs from the 25th November to the 10th December each year. 6 Days of Action Against Gender Based Violence was started in 1991 and is co-ordinated by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership.
