White Ribbon Day – 25 November 2020

White Ribbon Day – 25 November 2020

Our community safety team is supporting White Ribbon Day next Wednesday when people across the world say no to violence against women. During the coronavirus pandemic victims of domestic abuse have found it harder than ever to report abuse, as their opportunities to make that crucial call while they're abuser is away, have been limited even more. For this reason the police have introduced the 'Silent Solution'.

If someone needs help during an emergency but is unable to talk because of their abuser they can 'Call 999 and press 55'. This is known as the Silent Solution and will let the police know there is an emergency. We are therefore encouraging everyone to share Thames Valley Police's guidance on using Silent Solution as it could save lives.
