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.
