About Us

The A.C.T. Against Violence website is an initiative of the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations (SCWO) that aims to be a one-stop information and help site regarding ALL FORMS of violence against women of ALL ages. 

This includes violence against elderly, children, family members, intimate partners, as well as adults who are vulnerable, e.g. those who may be physically or mentally incapacitated.

It also aims to be a platform that can help to:
• Increases awareness of these types of violence
• To connect to people who will need this information
• To advise on how best to take precautions against violence
