Email Your MPs and Councillors

The Government has a range of initiatives to tackle violence against women and many local authorities treat it as a priority concern. However there are still serious gaps in the provision of services to women who have faced violence and a lot more work to be done on awareness raising and prevention.

Our elected representatives need to hear that we want them to act to end violence against women.

Email your MPs and councillors and ask them to sign the White Ribbon pledge and to do everything within their powers to eliminate violence against women. You can also ask MP's and Councillors if  their local council is working towards being a White ribbon town. A description of being a white ribbon town and the questionnaire to begin the process are on the website "Resources" page.

You can find addresses of MPs and councillors online
