Tigers Trust Celebrate White Ribbon Day 2022
Posted on 25th November 2022 at 10:33
The Tigers Trust are proud to support White Ribbon Day which takes place today.
White Ribbon is the UK’s leading charity engaging men and boys to end violence against women and girls. The mission is to prevent violence against women and girls by addressing its root causes. White Ribbon UK’s work is preventative, and they want to end violence before it starts.
During recent World Cups, cases of domestic violence towards women and girls continue to be a huge concern as Research by the University of Lancaster shows violent domestic abuse incidents increase by 38% when England loses football matches. Rates are also 26% higher when the team wins or draws.
Paul Wray, from the Tigers Trust’s Social Inclusion team, has recently registered to become a White Ribbon Ambassador.
Paul will share the message of White Ribbon and encourage other men to be reflective and make the White Ribbon Promise, including within his workplace, leisure activities, online, and amongst friends and families.
The importance of the event was also reflected at one of our recent Tigers Together sessions were the High Sheriff of the East Riding Of Yorkshire delivered a speech to participants around the importance of the campaign.
Speaking about the event Social Inclusion Manager Kayleigh Jackson said “It is vitally important that the Tigers Trust support campaigns such as White Ribbon.
"Delivering the White Ribbon workshop to our Tigers Together participants will hopefully give them the education and knowledge to challenge domestic abuse behaviours”.
