We Stand Together scheme

The We Stand Together project brings together businesses and venues in Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight that are committed to providing a supportive environment for anyone who has experienced sexual violence or harassment.

The project is being coordinated by Portsmouth City Council in partnership with Portsmouth Abuse and Rape Counselling Service (PARCS).

Staff working for businesses and venues who are part of We Stand Together have undergone training with PARCS and have made a commitment to creating a welcoming and supportive environment where any form of gender-based abuse will not be tolerated.

Participating venues will display the We Stand Together badge in their window.

We currently have the following ‘We Stand Together’ trained venues in Portsmouth:
