White Ribbon Campaign
The first step on the journey to becoming a Safe Place is the White Ribbon. All those who wear the White Ribbon and those who sign the White Ribbon Charter pledge to never commit, condone or stay silent about violence against women.
By Becoming a Safe Place Your Organisation will:
- Support the Safe Place Campaign Pledge to never commit, condone or stay silent about domestic violence
- Acknowledge domestic violence is a problem that impacts on all of us as a society, and will be prepared to play your part in supporting victims and sending a clear message to perpetrators that domestic violence is intolerable.
- Provide a Safe Place for victims of domestic violence to confidentially access information.
What Do Safe Places Have To Do?
Simply display the Safe Place logo which indicates that information on services for victims of domestic violence is available on the premises. Posters, cards and other resourcese are also available.
Safe Place Training
Women’s Aid ABCLN provides acredited training for all organisations wishing to become a Safe Place, and training is provided for those organisations wishing to take the first steps to becoming a Safe School, Safe Church and Safe Employer. The onus to address domestic violence is on all of us, and by becoming a Safe Place everyone can play their part.
