ONE MILLION STARS TO END VIOLENCE
Weaving Communities of Courage Against Violence
ONE MILLION STARS IRELAND
TIPPERARY'S STAR WEAVING JOURNEY
Cuan Saor Women’s Refuge & Support Services & Ascend Domestic Abuse Service are working together to progress the project in County Tipperary and are reaching out to communities across the county to gain support for the project. By coming together through star weaving, we can collectively take a stand towards ending violence in Ireland.
Weaving stars has been colourful fun and inclusive, many community groups and schools took part, some of our participants had learning difficulties but everyone had a role. We broke down the star weaving process from cutting and folding the ribbon through to completing the star.
All the participants attended Cuan Saor’s launch on International Women’s Day 2022 and showed great pride and commitment to the project and what it stands for.
Ascend Domestic Abuse Service for Women – a project of North Tipperary Development Company is a domestic violence support service based across North Tipperary with offices in Nenagh, Roscrea and Thurles providing a comprehensive support & advocacy service in North Tipperary. Helpline: (0505) 23999
Cuan Saor is a well-established domestic violence service based in Clonmel and providing a range of supports including refuge accommodation across Tipperary to women and children who have or are experiencing domestic violence. Cuan Saor felt the project would raise awareness of our service, ensuring women who are experiencing domestic violence are aware that there is help within their community. Helpline: 1800 57 67 57
