Football club joins campaign against domestic violence

Aldershot Town Football Club and the Safer North Hampshire community safety team are working together to tackle domestic abuse.

Through displaying information and details of where to look for help at the football ground, as well as putting the information in programmes, they hope it will encourage people to report domestic abuse.

Karen Evans, Chair of the North East Hampshire Domestic Abuse Forum said, "Abuse can happen to anyone, and often men are reluctant to report when they are the victims of abuse.

"Working in partnership with the club means that we are able to reach out to people who may not otherwise be aware of what help is available to them."

Nicky Banger from Aldershot Town Football Club said, "It's very important that we openly talk and communicate about domestic abuse, and emphasise that it is not ok or acceptable."
