Domestic Abuse Pledge
Tower Hamlets council is committed to working in partnership with statutory and community organisations to prevent domestic abuse and reduce the harm it causes to individuals, families and the community as a whole.
We cannot do this alone and we encourage those who support our aims to sign our Domestic Abuse Pledge.
Tower Hamlets’ Domestic Abuse Pledge was launched on November 25, 2013 to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. This marks the beginning of 16 Days of Action, the international campaign against gender violence.
The launching of the pledge also coincides with White Ribbon Week, a national campaign to encourage people to wear a white ribbon. The ribbon is a symbol of non-violence and the wearer makes a promise to not condone, ignore or tolerate abuse against women.
By signing our pledge you can show that you do not wish to let victims suffer in silence and that Tower Hamlets is a safe place for those experiencing domestic abuse.
We hope that you will support the work that we are doing to try and prevent domestic abuse and support any victims experiencing abuse.
