Bristol Zero Tolerance is managed by Bristol Women’s Voice to tackle gender-based violence, abuse, harassment and exploitation across the city. The project works in partnership with city leaders, employers and other key organisations to better help us achieve real change around gender-based violence issues.
Bristol Zero Tolerance acts as an overarching initiative linking different strategies and bodies together and raising awareness about the related work happening in Bristol.
