In your language coming soon…
This website provides information about different types of violence and abuse and support services that can help. There is also information on how to help others and how to raise awareness of violence and abuse.
What is BAVA?
Bristol Against Violence and Abuse (BAVA) is a collection of people and organisations in Bristol working to end all types of violence and abuse against women and girls and domestic and sexual violence against men. Formerly Bristol Domestic Abuse Forum (BDAF); the name change to BAVA enables Bristol to reflect the government policy to challenge all types of gender-based violence. Read the summary of the Bristol strategy or read the full strategy.
BAVA is supported by Safer Bristol and there are regular meetings to give people a chance to develop their knowledge, network, and discuss current issues and successes.
