The Aging Without Violence (AWV) project is guided by an inter-sector provincial advisory including stakeholders with expertise in violence against older women, public education, service provider training, research, and improved community responses.
Goals of the AWV project include:
Now in its sixth year, shelters across the province are engaging the community to become more aware of the often overlooked issue of woman abuse in Ontario.
November is Woman Abuse Prevention Month. The purple scarf is a symbol of the courage it takes woman leave her abuser. However, the courage of the woman is not enough. It takes the strength of an entire community to end violence against women.
Launched in June 2019, the Aging Without Violence Project's Invisibility Campaign calls awareness to the invisibility of older women experiencing violence. Service provider posters seek to connect professionals with the oaith.ca training portal, while the general public posters provide a bridge to the Senior Safety Line for older women who may be experiencing violence and their friends and family.
