Domestic abuse campaigns


We support the following annual campaigns to raise awareness of and end domestic violence.

16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence

This is aimed at businesses to support them to take action against domestic abuse and violence. Employers have a legal obligation to assess dynamic risk and support the health and safety and wellness of their staff. 

It runs for 16 days from 25 November to 10 December, a theme will be identified each day to explore the various forms of domestic violence. In doing so, the workplace will be better equipped to acknowledge the signs that indicate it may be going on.

16 Days Of Action

White Ribbon Day

This takes place every year on 25 November, and falls on the first day of 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence. The campaign encourages people in their communities, organisations and workplaces, to come together, and say 'no' to violence against women.

White Ribbon Day
 

Make the White Ribbon Pledge to never excuse, commit or remain silent about male violence against women.
