The White Ribbon Campaign

What is White Ribbon?

White Ribbon is an international effort to prevent men’s violence against women and girls.

Having started in 1991 in Toronto, Canada the movement has spread to over 57 countries and has been integral to raising awareness around the issue of domestic violence.

AnglicareSA is deeply committed to zero tolerance when it comes to all forms of violence and we fully support White Ribbon’s Workplace Accreditation Program.

We all have a role to play in being part of this important social change.

White Ribbon Accreditation

At AnglicareSA we strive to ensure the safety of our more than 1,800 staff and 700 volunteers.

One in three women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone known to them. In addition women in particular are more likely to experience harassment, discrimination and various forms of violence – physical, emotional, social, verbal – and this why we support the White Ribbon campaign here in Australia.

By undergoing a vigorous accreditation program, our aim is to support and equip our staff to stand up, speak out and act against domestic and family violence.

As part of the accreditation process, AnglicareSA has introduced:

  • Up to four days paid leave for victims of domestic violence
  • Access to specialist domestic violence contact officers
  • Counselling support through our Employee Assistance Program
  • Prevention of violence against women training for all staff
