Scottish Borders Status Project

Pledges Made:0000009


A Scottish Borders White Ribbon Scotland Status Project led by representatives of Scottish Borders Council and The Berwickshire Housing Association has begun to gain the award of White Ribbon Status for the Scottish Borders Area.

White Ribbon Scotland is a charity which began in 2010 and seeks to engage men to help end violence against women (VAW) by raising awareness of VAW and what men and boys can do to help end it. They recognize groups, organisations or areas which carry out a project to support this aim with the award of White Ribbon Status. The Project then continues to ensure an on-going approach to tackling violence against women in this way.
After we have recruited and trained volunteers to act as Speakers for this local campaign you can look out for activities in your local area.
In the meantime please go to the main website to sign the White Ribbon Scotland pledge and say, “I pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women in all its forms”. When you do this please select to link your pledge to your local Scottish Borders Status Project. After you sign it please consider an early application of your declaration to ‘not remain silent’ about violence against women by telling someone today that you signed the pledge and be proud you have done so; then encourage them to do the same.

You can contact the Steering Group Members by sending an email to the WRS Administration Officer on Rebekah@whiteribbonscotland.org.uk if you would like to discuss how you could be involved in this local community Project.

 

Most men do not commit violence against women. But all men have a role in ending it. If we all start by making a pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about men's violence against women in all its forms, that will make a huge difference.
