White Ribbon Promise. Never commit, never excuse, never stay silent. Say no to violence against women and girls. Newcastle City Council is proud to be White Ribbon Accredited

White Ribbon

White Ribbon UK are part of a global campaign to end male violence against women and girls.  They do this by encouraging men and boys to take action to change the behaviour and culture that leads to abuse and violence.

By making the White Ribbon Promise people pledge to never commit, never excuse and never stay silent about male violence against women and girls.

On 25 November 2021, White Ribbon Day, we were recognised for our commitment to ending male violence against women when we were awarded White Ribbon Accreditation for three years. To retain accredited status we will need to deliver the goals set out in our action plan.
