Broxtowe Borough Council Achieves White Ribbon Reaccreditation

18/04/24 - Broxtowe Borough Council have successfully been reaccredited by White Ribbon UK as an officially recognised organisation for the next 3 years.

The White Ribbon campaign is a national project that aims to work with local Government, private businesses and the public to raise awareness of and work towards ending violence against women and girls.

Over the last 3 years of accreditation the Council have worked to spread the message of the campaign across the Borough and beyond which has included:

  • Delivering educational sessions for children and adults on subjects surrounding domestic abuse.
  • Encouraging employees, partners and members of the public to sign up as ambassadors and champions of the White Ribbon.
  • Spearheaded numerous initiatives to help safeguard women and girls in Broxtowe from violence.

Chief Communities Officer Marice Hawley said, ‘We’re very proud to have achieved White Ribbon reaccreditation which reinforces our commitment to ensure that Broxtowe is a safe place for women and girls. We could not have achieved this without the support from our valued partners who we work together with to never use, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.’

Over the next 3 years the Council will continue to be dedicated to deliver on its White Ribbon action plan, working to stop violence before it starts and ending men’s violence against women and girls.
