Bristol Zero Tolerance

a city free from gender-based violence, abuse, harassment and exploitation

What is Bristol Zero Tolerance?

Bristol Zero Tolerance is an overarching initiative working towards Bristol becoming a city free from gender-based violence, abuse, harassment and exploitation. Bristol is the first city in England to take on this challenge and we hope that it will inspire other cities to implement similar initiatives.

The initiative links different strategies and bodies together and raises awareness about the related work happening in Bristol. We also encourage Bristol-based organisations and city leaders to set a good example and sign up to our pledge to take positive action.
