Standing Together Against Domestic Violence helps to reduce the huge social and economic cost of domestic violence in the UK. Each year, 112 women die as a result of domestic violence.
Our proven method supports organisations, including the police, criminal justice partners, social services, healthcare workers and charities, to identify and respond effectively together to domestic violence. Our ultimate aim is to help these agencies to work in partnership, so that people receive the best support at the time they need it.

Networking with Offenders and Offering Resolve (NOOR) is an innovative third sector social enterprise which was founded by its Chief Executive Bilal Dunn in urgent response to the growing need we have as a society to engage with our fractured youth community.
It has since developed educational programs through some of the Arts and Social Media as a way of bringing about social change by way of youth development. This has been achieved both locally within communities and amongst designated sections of the growing offender population within many of our country’s Young Offender and Adult Prison Institutions.
The Reader runs weekly groups where we bring people together to read novels, short stories, plays and poems, creating a space for people to be together, share thoughts and have personal reflections. Trained Reader Leaders read the stories aloud to the group each week and all our sessions are free to attend, so everyone--no matter their background or ability--can join in. Group members are welcome to read aloud, join the discussions or sit back and enjoy a good story. Shared Reading is about making personal connection – what the literature makes us feel, the meaning it holds for each of us, and the shared experiences we discover through discussions.
The Reader has been running Shared Reading groups in Kensington & Chelsea since 2010. We run groups across the borough each week in libraries, community centres, hospitals, and day centres. Please contact us for a list of our weekly groups.
