News – Women’s Aid – #DeserveToBeHeard Campaign

Women’s Aid’s new flagship campaign, Deserve To Be Heard, aims to ensure that the mental health needs of women, who are all too often not listened to and not believed, are heard and responded effectively. Survivor voice is at the heart of this campaign, and we will not be silenced until all women and children have access to the mental health support they deserve.    

Our federation of member services works alongside these women every day and understands their needs.  We know that specialist services – particularly those led ‘by and for’ Black and minoritised women, d/Deaf and disabled women, and LGBT+ women – are best placed to deliver the long-term healing needed to support women through the trauma of abuse. Throughout the campaign, we will be highlighting the importance of dedicated funding for these specialist women’s services.  

Campaign Aims

  • Change perceptions and attitudes towards survivors’ mental health which compound women’s trauma and inequality. 
  • Secure sufficient funding to enable specialist women’s services – particularly those led ‘by and for’ Black and minoritised groups – to deliver vital mental health support and long-term healing.
