Southall Black Sisters – Group Award Nominee – 2004

SBS have a long history of providing support from women in situations of domestic violence, and of inventive campaigning. They are nominated this year for the unstinting work they have done to contribute to the government’s consultation exercise on domestic violence, and subsequently the Domestic Violence Bill. As a member of the standing committee for the Domestic Violence Bill, Vera Baird commends them for their clarity of input and the strength and voracity of their campaigning. The importance of their work for victims of domestic violence cannot be underestimated, and they are nominated here in recognition and celebration of this remarkable work.
