This has been a challenging year for everyone and with the reported increase in violence against women during lockdown we know that raising awareness of domestic abuse issues is vital.
Organisations across the Blackpool and Fylde coast have backed a national campaign to end violence, harassment and abuse.
Staff from the Trust continues to join forces with other organisations including Blackpool Council, Lancashire Victim Services and Fylde Coast Women’s Aid to promote White Ribbon Day which takes place every year on November 25th.
The White Ribbon campaign aims to educate and raise awareness of violence against women and engage more men to be part of the solution.
Supporters of the campaign were asked to pledge never to commit, condone, or remain silent about men’s violence against women in all its forms and make it clear that all violence and abuse is not acceptable for any victim regardless of gender.
You can get involved and pledge your support at the White Ribbon UK website : www.whiteribbon.org.uk.
