At Lewisham Homes we have pledged our support of White Ribbon Day as we make a stand against violence towards women.
Each year around the date of 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) thousands of people across the UK come together to raise awareness as part of the national White Ribbon Day campaign.
This year the theme of White Ribbon Day is ‘creating a future without male violence against women’.
We will be supporting the campaign’s 16 days of action over social media sharing our support and advice for those who are affected by domestic violence.
Our staff are making the pledge to never commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women.
White Ribbon UK founder and president Chris Green OBE says: “It’s men’s responsibility to stop gender violence, and since men listen a bit more carefully when the message is spoken by other men, we need to challenge each other to do better.”
If you or anyone you know has been affected by domestic violence, please visit our webpage for advice.
