Pledge your support to end domestic abuse

St.Helens Council is renewing its efforts to end domestic abuse in support of the national White Ribbon Campaign, inviting local people to pledge their support.

The White Ribbon campaign was devised by an entirely male group to end violence against women, but St.Helens Council want to expand on that aim, and their message is simple: domestic abuse knows no age, gender, race or religion.

The White Ribbon Campaign follows the well-received 'Be a Lover, not a Fighter' campaign, which aimed to stimulate conversation about domestic abuse, thereby eliminating the associated stigma.

Domestic abuse involves a wide range of violent or controlling behaviour. St.Helens Council, one of many local authority White Ribbon supporters across the country, wants to ensure that all victims have access to appropriate services and feel effectively supported.
So, no matter the circumstances, all who have suffered or who are currently suffering abuse, whether physical, emotional, sexual or even financial, are encouraged to come forward and report the crime to the Independent Domestic Violence Advocate on 01744 743 200.
They can also email: advice.
