White Ribbon Campaign
Join us for our 2017 White Ribbon event on Friday 25th November 2016 – which is also a celebration of Compassion’s 15th Birthday.
Our event is taking place at Gainsborough House, Sudbury from 10.30 am to 12.30 am – to attend please contact [email protected]
White Ribbon is a worldwide campaign run by men working to raise awareness of domestic violence and abuse. They ask men to pledge not to commit, condone or remain silent about men’s violence against women.

Compassion plays and active part in the two week campaign, which runs from 25th November (UN International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) until 10th December each year.
In 2014, we were supported by male staff from Sainsbury’s, Sudbury, who helped to promote the campaign by walking a ‘Mile in Her Shoes’ – they literally walked a mile in high heels and gained much press coverage to raise awareness of violence against women and girls.
