White  Ribbon UK

White Ribbon UK was founded in 2005, and is part of the global movement to end male violence against women. The campaign works with men and boys to challenge those male cultures that lead to harassment, abuse and violence.

White Ribbon in Lancashire

The Commissioner has supported the White Ribbon Campaign since he first took office. In 2017 he led the successful bid to make Lancashire the UK’s first White Ribbon County.

Lancashire County Council and all Lancashire district councils and unitary authorities now hold White Ribbon Status which marks their commitment to ending violence against women and girls.

Lancashire Constabulary and East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group have also been accredited as part of the drive to educate and raise awareness of violence against women, and to engage men in the debate around the issue.

Violence against women and girls is unacceptable and shockingly over 90% of domestic abuse is witnessed by children. This has to stop and anything we can do to tackle the issue and get people talking about it has to be a good thing.

“The White Ribbon Campaign is about raising awareness and speaking out against violence and abuse and I am proud to support this.

“I have made specialist support for victims available through Lancashire Victim Services and I would urge anyone affected to contact the service.

Clive Grunshaw
Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner
