White Ribbon accreditation for Lewes District and Eastbourne

White Ribbon certificate

We have received notification from the White Ribbon Campaign that Eastbourne and Lewes District have formally received their accreditation as a White Ribbon Campaign area.

The White Ribbon Campaign aims to end male violence against women and girls by encouraging men and boys to take the pledge to never condone, or stand by in incidents of domestic violence. Tackling Domestic Abuse, in all forms, is a key priority for the Lewes District Community Safety Partnership and the White Ribbon Campaign supports wider work across East Sussex.

A number of events are being held across Lewes District to raise awareness of the Campaign, with a special commemoration of White Ribbon Day that took place last Friday 25th November with 16 days of action following, ending on 10th December.

Harry Williams, Community Safety Officer told us: “While there’s still work to do, I’m really pleased that we have the white ribbon accreditation and I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone for all of the support that you’ve given so far.”
