Male violence towards women is shockingly prevalent, and we can only change society by promoting a message of respect and tolerance, and leading by example.

Public sector organisations, large and small, can achieve so much more than individuals can alone.

White Ribbon provides a comprehensive action plan for organisations to effectively marshal their resources and personnel to challenge male violence against women and make a genuine difference.

The action plan is concise and wide-ranging and offers achievable goals for organisations to reach in order to bring about genuine change. Once an organisation can demonstrate a commitment to this plan, it becomes eligible for the White Ribbon Award.

What is the White Ribbon Award?

The award is an official White Ribbon accreditation that entitles an organisation to White Ribbon training and campaigning guidance, use of White Ribbon branding on official documents and signage, and exclusive access to a network of other accredited organisations to promote fundraising, awareness and events.

Who can apply for the Award? 

Any public-facing organisation can and should apply for White Ribbon accreditation; councils, local authorities, police and fire services, schools and universities, sports clubs and venues - these are all examples of organisations who are eligible for the White Ribbon Award programme.
