We’re pleased to be recognised as a White Ribbon workplace. We offer a range of supports to staff who are experiencing domestic violence.
White Ribbon Accreditation
AnglicareSA is proud to be recognised as a White Ribbon accredited workplace.
We’re strongly committed to supporting our staff who are affected by domestic and family violence. We also support our customers facing domestic violence through both our family and homelessness programs.
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 five 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
What is White Ribbon?
White Ribbon is the world’s largest movement working to end men’s violence against women and girls, promote gender equality, healthy relationships and a new vision of masculinity.
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.
As South Australia’s largest social services provider, we know we can make a huge difference when it comes addressing the problem of domestic violence in SA.
We provide a range of services to help victims of domestic and family violence, including:
