Another great day at another festive event in Taunton. Thank you to Think Amy and the Kelsey Cancer Fund for organising the day.

Raising Community Awareness

November 18, 2013

We had a fantastic day at the Taunton Christmas Fair on Sunday 17th November. It was extremely cold and by the end of the day we were frozen to the core but it was definitely worth it. We had some great conversations with a variety of members of the community both young and old. We…

Good Exposure

November 7, 2013

So in the last 2 days I have been in London for the UK Youth Conference and AGM then I went to present to the Bristol PSHE teachers at their conference. I'm pleased to say that both were very rewarding although the journey to London was surprisingly tiring especially having to take a huge divert…

Successful day at Plymouth

The day at the PSHE conference in Plymouth is coming to an end and we're all packed up.

An Interesting Night with the Bristol Police

October 19, 2013

Written by Adam Fouracre (CEO, Stand Against Violence). Last night I spent a shift with the Avon and Somerset Constabulary in Bristol. This is something I did in Taunton many years ago when I first started the charity, or what was at the time a campaign. The first time I went on a ride a…

Next steps

October 19, 2013

Here at SAV we have made a decision. That decision is that we WILL become a leading specialist organisation in violence prevention in the UK. Quite an aim I'm sure you will agree but based on the progress we have made in our last 3 years as a charity it is most definitely achievable. So…
