None In Three Goes Global

The None In Three team join leading experts from the UK and in developing countries across the world are joining forces to tackle some of the most serious global challenges in a new multi-disciplinary research programme launched today. In one of the most ambitious international research programmes ever created, £225 Million has been invested across 37 interdisciplinary projects to address challenges in fields such as health, humanitarian crises, conflict, the environment, the economy, domestic violence, society, and technology. The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Research Councils UK Collective Fund is supporting projects in the range of £2 – 8 million over four years. It aims to build upon research knowledge in the UK, and strengthen capacity overseas, to help address challenges, informed by expressed need in the developing countries.

PhD Scholarships

We welcome the announcement in the Queens Speech (21 June 2017), that new legislation is to be introduced to protect victims of domestic violence and abuse - within the first six months of the year, over 30 women in the UK had been murdered at the hands of a partner. Prioritising the needs of victims must be a primary aim of governments and so too, must be addressing the attitudes and practices which perpetuate violence against women (UN CEDAW).

In recognition of the importance of addressing such attitudes while they are being formed, the University of Huddersfield has awarded funding to extend the Ni3 model to the UK. In October 2017, a sister project will be launched at the University to focus on preventing intimate partner violence among young people. This will result in the creation of an educational anti-violence computer game designed to increase GBV awareness and enhance empathy/non-adversarial problem-solving skills among young people. Linked to this, three new PhD scholarships are being made available.

What is None In Three?

None in Three is two-year action-oriented project funded by the EU and implemented in the Caribbean in partnership with the Sweet Water Foundation in Grenada. Supported by national and regional agencies, the project is designed to complement existing domestic violence programmes in the region and also to contribute to change at the international level. Taking its name from the fact that one in three women will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetime, the project challenges the idea that violence to women is an inevitability and aims: 1) to increase access to justice and services for especially marginalised women, 2) to engage with men and youth about what needs to be done and 3) to prevent violence through education.

The final report of qualitative research carried out in Barbados and Grenada has now been published.

Perhaps you would be willing to become a None in Three representative, or join in the discussion around our conversation piece on the role of social workers.

Untold Stories

Maya Angelou, poet and civil rights activist once said. "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you". If you have an untold story of domestic violence, telling it on our new Survivor's Blog Spot might help to share the load of carrying it. If you have a story of elder abuse perhaps this might compel more of us to speak out.
