As part of the White Ribbon Campaign, people across the world are focusing on creating a future without male violence against women.
Colleagues from Trivallis marched together to support of the campaign and raise awareness of the support available amongst teams.
Lianne Bulford, Neighbourhood Services Team Manager at Trivallis, said: “We are proud to be supporting the White Ribbon Campaign. It was great to highlight the fact that Trivallis is committed to taking action against violence and I’m delighted that so many colleagues got involved in the march.
“It wasn’t easy for them, but we encouraged male colleagues to put on heels for the march in order to get them talking about something that’s really difficult to talk about; gender relations and violence against women. There is an old saying, ‘You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.’
“In 2018 – 19, South Wales Police recorded 17,389 domestic abuse related crimes, with a 53% increase over four years, according to data from the Office for National Statistics. We are committed to raising awareness of this and highlight the support and help available to anyone experiencing domestic abuse, regardless of their gender.”
Trivallis is committed to working towards the DAHA Accreditation. This is the UK benchmark for how housing providers should respond to domestic abuse in the UK, part of the Governments “Ending Violence against Women and Girls Strategy: 2016 to 2020”.
