North Mid shows their commitment to ending male violence against women by becoming White Ribbon Accredited

North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust has taken a stand to end all male violence against women by becoming White Ribbon Accredited.  White Ribbon is a global campaign that encourages people, and especially men and boys, to individually and collectively take action and change the behaviour and culture that leads to abuse and violence. To wear a white ribbon is to promise to never to commit, excuse or remain silent about male violence against women.

Commitments made by North Mid in their White Ribbon action plan include, appointing a group of volunteer male ambassadors from across North Mid who champion stopping violence against women, policies at the Trust to cover male violence against women and training for staff on supporting survivors of domestic abuse.

Celia Jeffreys, associate director of safeguarding at North Mid, said: “We must do everything we can to make our society safer, in homes, in public spaces and online. The White Ribbon Accreditation is an important milestone in our efforts at North Mid to help achieve this and I’m incredibly proud to work with people who share this ambition and are committed to making this a reality.”

Anthea Sully, Chief Executive of White Ribbon UK said: “Our call to end violence by raising awareness, educating and campaigning to bring about change is greatly strengthened by working together with our White Ribbon accredited organisations. Our partners are able to engage with many thousands of people to change the cultures that lead to violence against women and girls.  We are delighted to welcome North Mid as one of our White Ribbon Accredited organisations. Together we can prevent violence happening in the first place”.
