Ahead of White Ribbon Day on Saturday 25th November, we are delighted to announce that White Ribbon Accreditation has been granted to Crewe Town Council for its commitment to support the campaign to end men’s violence against women in the workplace and local community.
Crewe Town Council is pleased to align with White Ribbon UK, the leading charity engaging men and boys to end violence against women.
As a White Ribbon Accredited organisation, Crewe Town Council will deliver a comprehensive plan to change culture, systems, and the wider community we operate in to eliminate attitudes and behaviours that lead to violence against women. White Ribbon Accreditation is an opportunity to ensure our workplace is a safe place for men and women, and to enable staff to become active supporters.
A spokesperson at Crewe Town Council said:
“We are pleased to announce our commitment to ending men’s violence against women as demonstrated by this White Ribbon Accreditation. White Ribbon UK is a charitable organisation, made up of individuals and organisations, who want to create a world where women and men are equal — and where women and girls can live without the fear of men’s violence. With their support, we have worked to create a plan to help us to achieve this aim, to make our community a better place for everyone.”
Anthea Sully, Chief Executive of White Ribbon UK said:
“White Ribbon Accredited Organisations can make a real difference towards ending violence against women by promoting a culture of respect and equality among their staff and wider communities. By raising awareness among employees, people can learn how to become allies and call out violent and abusive behaviour when they see it. We are delighted to welcome Crewe Town Council as one of our White Ribbon Accredited Organisations and are looking forward to working with them towards ending violence against women once and for all.”
