Vale Council Launches White Ribbon Campaign


Published 20 November 2014


The Vale of Glamorgan Council will be hosting an event on 10 December to celebrate White Ribbon Day and to launch the White Ribbon Campaign within the Vale.


The campaign looks to raise awareness and understanding of domestic violence and provides services to reduce number of domestic violence cases and to provide the local community with increased support and understanding of the issue.


The White Ribbon Town award was presented to the Vale Council at the Senedd in Cardiff on 30 September, recognising the Council’s continued commitment to the aims of the campaign.


The event will follow directly on from the Domestic Violence Forum meeting that morning, and comes after the Vale Cabinet agreed to implement both a Domestic Abuse Policy and an Anti-Social Behaviour Policy, which will come into effect in January 2015.


Recently the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service became the first in the UK to be awarded the White Ribbon accreditation for its commitment to reducing and preventing domestic abuse in the South Wales area.
