The HANDS OFF Campaign features videos from people from all walks of life: famous sports people, celebrities, Lords, Baronesses, business leaders, social campaigners and members of the general public, all speaking out to end violence against adults and children.
HANDS OFF is a global campaign. We are not a charity. We are not fundraising.
The Co-creators of this campaign have been directly affected themselves or have had close friends and family who have suffered violent abuse.

"Having witnessed my mother and sisters suffer horrific violent abuse, I have become an impassioned advocate of non-violence. I pray and meditate daily. During my meditations in 2016 I had a vision of the HANDS OFF gesture. Soon after, the wording for the campaign and its goals came through:
1. Victims will speak up.
2. Abusers will stop.
3. Violence becomes unacceptable.
VIOLENCE ISN’T ON, SO HANDS OFF."

"I work for clients in the sports industry specifically advising on a raft of sports regulations and sports broadcasting issues."
