A number of local activities are planned across North Worcestershire to mark the ‘16 Days Of Action’ in support of the White Ribbon Campaign against domestic abuse. It starts on 25th November and runs until 10th December.
We're still inviting Worcestershire men, women and children to sign up and SAY NO to domestic abuse and sexual violence by showing their support for the campaign. By signing up , you'll be showing you're strong enough to SAY NO to domestic abuse and sexual violence. Whilst the White Ribbon campaign nationally is focused on ending violence against women and girls and is directed at men, we in Worcestershire want to eliminate violence against all sexes, recognising that it has devastating effects on women, men and children.
Worcestershire sport teams such as Worcester Warriers and Kidderminster Harriers, Councillors, schools all join us in pledging and wearing white ribbons to raise awareness of domestic abuse and sexual violence, and the effect it has on its victims. Please encourage your friends and family to sign up too. By pledging your support, you can make a difference.
