Welcome to Equation
Domestic violence shatters lives. 1 in 4 women will experience this form of abuse in their lifetime and on average 2 women a week are killed by a partner or ex-partner. In Nottingham, domestic abuse accounts for nearly half of all reported violent crime. For over 20 years Equation (formerly Nottinghamshire Domestic Violence Forum) has been working across Nottinghamshire to reduce and prevent this abuse.
We believe that everyone deserves healthy relationships that are based on mutual respect and free from abuse.
Equation prevents and responds to abuse through:
EQUIPPING communities with the knowledge and information that allows everyone to make positive relationship choices, recognise abuse and challenge domestic violence
ENABLING survivors of domestic abuse to access help through guidance and support
EMPOWERING individuals with the confidence to speak out against domestic violence and gender inequality, and the self-esteem to recognise their rights to a healthy relationship
