Wear white ribbon to show support for abuse campaign

East Sussex County Council marked White Ribbon Day at the weekend (November 25).

This is part of an international campaign highlighting violence against women and young girls.

Men are being asked to wear a White Ribbon to show their support.

For two weeks following November 25, people are being asked to support an end to violence against women and girls by making a pledge at: www.whiteribboncampaign.co.uk

In East Sussex, the County Council’s Safer Communities Team is working to tackle violence against women and girls with other local authorities, the police, the probation service and voluntary and community organisations, as part of the Safer Communities Partnership.

If anyone is suffering from domestic abuse they can call the National Domestic Violence Helpline (run by Refuge and Women’s Aid) on 0808 2000 247.
