Our Objectives

Action Breaks Silence is an educational charity established to create a world free from violence against women and girls and the threat of such violence. 

To achieve this, a multi-pronged approach is adopted and actioned through the delivery of the Action Breaks Silence Community Intervention in schools’ settings.

A “whole schools approach”, (developed by Ava) is used to engage, educate and empower all members of a schools community, including school governors, senior management, staff, students, parents and care-givers to end violence against women and girls in schools and in surrounding communities.

Our programmes aim to tackle sexual harassment and sexual violence, with targeted strategies to address issues such as gender inequality and toxic masculinity, which underpin harmful sexual behaviour. The design and delivery of the Action Breaks Silence Community Intervention is guided by the Social Norms and Active Bystander Theories.

Our programmes, designed and developed by Founder and CEO Debi Steven alongside an international community of activists, academics and youth, are aimed at profoundly changing the prevailing narratives on VAWG.

Approximately 85,000 women are raped and over 400,000 women are sexually assaulted in England and Wales every year.

WE STAND IN SOLIDARITY

ACTION BREAKS SILENCE STANDS IN SOLIDARITY WITH ALL GROUPS ADVOCATING FOR RACIAL JUSTICE IN OUR BROKEN SYSTEM. ACTION BREAKS SILENCE FOCUSES PROGRAMME DELIVERY WITHIN THESE COMMUNITIES.

Our hearts are with the families of our murdered brothers, sisters and neighbours. We condemn all racist acts and we mourn for the lives lost and damaged. Our shared work to build a world free from all forms of discrimination, free of violence against women and girls—to build a more just and equitable world—sustains us. It is our fervent hope that this moment in history will mark true change. A change that opens up new opportunities for restructuring our culture toward greater justice … where shared humanity, equal opportunity, and equal responsibility reign.
