Marking White Ribbon Day to prevent violence against women
Posted on 25 November 2023
Today (Saturday 25 November) we are marking White Ribbon Day.
Throughout the past week, ahead of today, we held a number of events with our crews and a signing ceremony at Joint Headquarters alongside Nottinghamshire Police and Broxtowe Women's Project.
White Ribbon UK is the leading charity engaging with men and boys to prevent violence against women.
Staff from across the organisation have taken the pledge by signing the White Ribbon to never use, excuse or remain silent about men’s violence against women.
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service recently became an accredited organisation with White Ribbon. Being White Ribbon Accredited means that we have committed to continuously work towards culture change.
Area Manager Andy Macey said: “Our commitment to end violence against women and girls is nothing new, but today we are proud to publicly declare our long-term approach alongside White Ribbon UK.
“While we know that culture change doesn’t happen overnight, we are making the White Ribbon Promise to make consistent choices and actions to change the story for women and girls.”
