White Ribbon Event

White Ribbon Event

We will be marking White Ribbon Day on Wednesday 28th November at WHiST from 12.30 until 1.30pm.

This event is for women only and aims to help raise awareness about domestic violence and its impacts.

We will be focussing on  womens’ voices – and there will be short readings of poetry and other writing from women survivors of domestic violence, alongside information, the myths that surround domestic violence and details of further support.  There will be individual support available if you need to speak to someone at the event.

The event will be held in the coffee bar and a raffle will also be drawn.  Food and refreshments will be available.

We also have a volunteer out and about in the community promoting awareness and asking men and agencies to pledge their support to ending male violence against women and girls.  More news about this will follow.

 Sunday 25th November is International day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
