United against domestic violence

Organisations from across Lancashire united against violence towards women.

White Ribbon Day on November 25 marks an international campaign to help stop domestic violence against women. The campaign encourages men of all ages to take a pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women, and to make their commitment public by wearing a white ribbon for 16 days.

To help make Lancashire the first White Ribbon county, organisations are being called upon to pledge their support.

Reports of high-risk domestic abuse in Lancashire have increased steadily over three years.
