Find out about your local women's organisation and multi agency partnership and see what you can do to help. As services offer accommodation and support to women who have undergone serious violence, many are women-only environments so it is best to email or call rather than knocking on the door.
Ask whether they would like any support – depending on local needs, you could volunteer your time and skills, make a donation, or hold a fund-raising event.
Many thanks to Steve Shaw, a Prison Officer currently attached to Safer Leeds Domestic Violence Team, working with perpetrators of domestic violence. On the 26th May 2013 he will be taking part in the Edinburgh Marathon, running to stop violence against women and raising funds for the White Ribbon Campaign. He invites you all to support him in this extremely worthwhile campaign by visiting my just giving page @ http://www.justgiving.com/Stephen-Shaw1
On Wednesday 7th November, representatives of the White Ribbon Campaign, Chris Green and Joan Taylor, attended a parliamentary photo call in London. The event was attended by many Labour MPs including Harriet Harmon and Yvette Cooper.
Several global surveys suggest that half of all women who die from homicide are killed by their current or former husbands or partners.
