Logo for the White Ribbon campaign

The White Ribbon Campaign is the largest global effort of men working to end male violence against women. Its' aim is to educate, raise awareness and engage men in this issue.

Supporters of the campaign can pledge to never commit, condone, or remain silent about men's violence against women in all its forms.

We have been accredited as a White Ribbon organisation, along with:

  • all other local authorities in Lancashire
  • Lancashire Constabulary
  • the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner
  • several health bodies

Each organisation has an action plan to raise awareness of the anti-Violence Against Women and Girls campaign, including nominating at least four male ambassadors to take the campaign forward.

The 25 November is White Ribbon Day, and is held, to coincide with International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. This is followed by 16 days of activism against gender based violence.
