This year the One Billion Rising day of awareness lands on a weekend - Saturday 14 February 2015. One Billion Rising is an international campaign to engage, awaken and join people worldwide to end violence against women and girls.

There are events in various locations around the UK. If there isn't one near you then why not plan your own event. There are lots of useful tips and resources on the One Billion Rising website.

Keeping yourself safe when using the Internet is something everyone needs to know how to do. It is not always as technical or complicated as you might think. There is an excellent article on the Women's Aid website, which provides lots of useful information on how to do this.

At Splitz we believe that students deserve the best opportunity to develop their theory into practice and we offer placements on many of our projects across the region.

Long Term Placements

Mainly, we will consider applications for placements from students in Higher Education. Due to the nature of our much of work we cannot normally accept students who are still in Secondary Education. We have hosted social work students from Bath University, Southampton University, Winchester University, University of West of England and Wiltshire College.

Short Term


Helen approached us in March 2013. She was depressed, struggling through the process of losing her daughters to long term foster care, living on a budget and still struggling to get out of a controlling relationship, even though she was divorced 5 years ago and her ex was remarried. She was also being controlled by her son who lived with her ex, his father.

Liz, a lone parent with 3 children was referred to Community4 by the Paloma Project when she required support to move to a new area after experiencing domestic violence.

Sandra had experienced and witnessed domestic abuse from a very early age. She is the youngest of a family of 5 and the daughter to the perpetrator; the other children were his step-children. Her father misused drugs and would become extremely violent when under the influence. She watched as her father physically and emotionally abused her mother, half- brother and half-sister. On one occasion Sandra stopped her brother from drowning in his own bath as his father had punched his face so hard that he was knocked out for nearly three hours.

Hilary and Pete have been married for five years. Originally from Uganda, he is a Commonwealth soldier based in Wiltshire. His assaults against her had became progressively worse with both police and Army Welfare involvement. Hilary self referred to Splitz after being given our leaflet at the Hive. Hilary was struggling to accept her failed marriage, which culturally is considered shameful. Pete had been back to Uganda and married again, which seems to be legal in Uganda. He wanted to bring his second wife and baby into the quarters; escalating acrimony.

Mr Brown was referred to the Turnaround programme via Social Services. Mr Brown was being abusive to his partner and there was concern about neglect of the children.
