White Ribbon Day -

Powys White Ribbon Day
10.00am to 12.00am, Friday 25th November                                   
Powys County Hall, Llandrindod Wells.

As a White Ribbon Authority, Powys County Council and partners are committed to preventing domestic abuse and all forms of violence against women.

November 25th is White Ribbon Day and the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. It is a chance for us all to show our support to survivors and to make the White Ribbon pledge never to commit, condone, or remain silent about men's violence against women.

We will be show-casing some of the dedicated work that goes on every single day in Powys to combat abuse. There will be a series of very brief presentations and a chance to network with organisations including Barnardos, Calan DVS, Creu Cymru, Dyfed-Powys Police, Hafan Cymru, Montgomeryshire Family Crisis Centre, PAVO, the Spectrum Project and White Ribbon Ambassadors. Chris Davies MP will also be giving his support. 

Here is the full programme:

10.00              Arrival, photo-call and an opportunity to make the White Ribbon Pledge.
10.15              Opening of the Powys White Ribbon Day by Cllr Keith Tampin, Chairman of PCC.
10.20              “Taster” Presentations from local organisations.
10.55              Closing of the presentations.
11.00              Opening of the exhibition area with refreshments.
12.00              Event ends.

We look forward to welcoming you all to this special event. Powys employees can book a place through Trent, people from any other organisation can book a place by emailing or by phoning 01597 827507.

Commissioning Manager (Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence)
