Worcs -white -ribbon -buttonIn Worcestershire we are all standing together and saying NO to domestic abuse in all its forms.

Wearing a white ribbon shows your commitment to ending domestic abuse and sexual violence and promoting respectful relationships.

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.

Worcestershire sport teams such as Worcester Warriers and Kidderminster Harriers, Councillors, schools all join us in wearing white ribbons to raise awareness of domestic abuse and sexual violence, and the effect it has on its victims.
