Focus on domestic and sexual violence at Bestival

Sunday, August 31, 2014 - 12:00

BESTIVAL-goers will be encouraged to Reclaim the Night and learn more about domestic and sexual violence.
Members of the Isle of Wight Domestic Abuse Forum and Island charities will be on hand to provide information and advice.
The Isle of Wight Council's domestic abuse coordinator, Fleur Gardiner, said: "Young people aged 16 to 25 are at the highest risk of domestic abuse and sexual assault and we are grateful to the Bestival team for allowing us the opportunity to give a positive message and advice to a wide range of young people."
Working under the Reclaim the Night banner, the group will set up camp at the top of Peace Hill — formerly the Tomorrow's World area of the site. Their stand will be decorated with giant Easter Island heads.
All are welcome and there will be a safe space available for anyone who wants to talk to specialist staff.
