From 25 November to 10 December 2019, Progress Housing Group is supporting 16 Days of Action, an international campaign aimed at businesses to take action against domestic abuse and violence.

Over on our social media channels, we'll be explaining how people can support the campaign, raising awareness about the help and support which is available for victims of domestic abuse and violence, and signposting people to where they can get free and confidential advice 24 hours a day.

The White Ribbon campaign works alongside 16 Days of Action as a global movement to end male violence against women. Wearing a white ribbon is a personal pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women. Today our Board proudly wore their white ribbons in support of the campaign.

Staff from our South Ribble and Chorley Women's Refuges will be hosting a stand outside Leyland Market on Tuesday (10 December) to raise awareness of the campaign and provide information, advice and guidance about domestic abuse.
