What is Bristol Zero Tolerance?

Bristol Zero Tolerance is a new initiative set up by Bristol Women’s Commission 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.

This Commission-led initiative works with the City Council and other bodies to bring together existing action on gender-based violence across the city and are encouraging and supporting other organisations to sign up and take action on this important issue. City leaders and major employers across the city are invited to lead by example by signing the pledge and committing to taking at least one action to promote a Zero Tolerance to gender-based violence.

The vision of the Zero Tolerance City initiative is for Bristol to become a city with a zero tolerance approach to gender-based violence, abuse, harassment and exploitation.
