Catholic workers make pledge against domestic violence on White Ribbon Day

White Ribbon Day is on Friday but is marked in the National Assembly for Wales today where Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant will speak at two special events hosted by the National Federation of Women's Institutes Wales (NFWI Wales) and Joyce Watson AM.

This announcement comes one day before the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and with Bill 26, Domestic and Sexual Violence Workplace Leave, Accommodation and Training Act, 2016 before the legislature. "Intimate partner violence is also the leading cause of death, disability and ill-health in Australian women aged 15-44".

South Tyneside Council is backing a global bid aiming to stop domestic violence against women. Whether you live, work or study in Camden, if you are concerned your relationship isn't healthy, or are concerned about someone you know, please get in touch.

"On White Ribbon Day, I would like to pass on my gratitude to those New Zealanders who are passionately and tirelessly working to help victims feel safe and secure", says Ms Adams.

Superintendent Jenny Barnett from Enfield police said: "The message is clear - no form of domestic violence will be tolerated".

White Ribbon is an global male-led campaign to end violence against women, which originated in Canada in 1991, and is now active in more than 60 countries.

Police attend a call for help from a victim of family harm every 4.9 minutes in New Zealand - and one officer knows all too well how serious the issue is.

Inspector Owen Hortz of Southport division said that police work closely with the courts to ensure that victims receive the support they need.

Events are being held in East Sussex to mark a global event aimed at stopping violence against women. "The release of the Not Now Not Ever report and the new domestic and family violence laws have allowed police to enforce incidents of domestic violence like no time before".

In addition, the first Domestic Violence High Risk Offender Team (DV HROT) trial has been launched, which comprises a dedicated team of officers who are targeting the most risky offenders across the Central Metropolitan Region.

Prof Polaschek also recommends a response system that's specific for this type of family violence, which includes intimate partner violence, and abuse of any family or whanau member.
