Students support White Ribbon campaign

A group of Health and Social Care students from Gower College Swansea have been working hard to raise awareness of domestic abuse issues.

The Level 2 Diploma students were inspired to act following a recent tutorial session delivered by the local multi-agency domestic abuse ‘One Stop Shop.’

Following on from this tutorial, the students decided to support the White Ribbon Campaign, an initiative - devised by men – that is aimed at encouraging everyone to stand up to those who commit violence against women.
