White Ribbon awareness campaign


White Ribbon

The White Ribbon Campaign UK is part of a global movement to put a stop to male violence against women and girls.  The aim is to educate and raise awareness of violence against women, and to engage men in these issues.

Wearing a White Ribbon is a personal pledge to never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women.  Each year they urge as many as possible to wear a white ribbon, starting on 25 November, the world marks International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women also known as White Ribbon Day.  From then until the 10th December, they encourage everybody to take part in the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence.

Although the campaign is focused primarily on reducing violence against women, it is not just women who are affected by domestic abuse.  Information on where you can access help can be found on our Safer New Forest website.   



White Ribbon's will be available at all New Forest District Council Information Offices free of charge to raise awareness of the campaign.

You First are hosting a White Ribbon Awareness Day on Friday 24 November at Dibden Tesco, Sizer Way, Dibden, Southampton, SO45 5JA within the car park from 9am-2pm.  The Safer New Forest partnership bus will also be there to provide a confidential place for people to discuss any concerns in a safe and private environment.
