The first in a series of meetings aimed at raising awareness about domestic violence and sexual harassment is set to take place.

The meeting is part of the ‘Let’s Talk’ campaign, backed by city MP’s Mark Lancaster and Iain Stewart.

The campaign aims to highlight the number of unreported incidents of sexual harrassment and domestic violence that take place in the city – and the impact these have on communities.

The meeting will take place at 5.30pm on Friday, April 26 at the Leadenhall Campus of Milton Keynes College.

Mark Lancaster, MP for Milton Keynes North, said: “Based on the number of supportive calls we have had in the office since launching this campaign, the importance of getting this issue out in the open couldn’t be more pressing.

“We want to help support the work of faith and community group leaders in assisting those affected by domestic violence and sexual abuse.”

And his MK South counterpart, Mr Stewart, added: “This is a difficult subject to bring out into the open but the sad fact is it happens. Nevertheless, it is hugely important for victims to know there is help out there and for community leaders to know they have a role to play in this process too”

If you are suffering from domestic violence you can contact MK-Act from Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm, on 0844 375 4307.
