Safer Neighbourhoods Stronger Communities

Waverley White Ribbon Day

Neighbourhood Watch Scotland staff attended Waverley Train Station on Wednesday 29 November highlight White Ribbon Scotland, and raise awareness of the 16 days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

We were joined by our partners from Network Rail, Scotrail, British Transport Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, led by the MELSB Area Commander Hilary Sangster. The objective was to highlight this international campaign, which started on 25 November, the International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls runs until 10 December, Human Rights Day.
During the event, staff from Neighbourhood Watch Scotland supported colleagues from White Ribbon Scotland and partners to engage with commuters on the busy station concourse. These included members of the University of Edinburgh Basketball Club, who kindly stopped for a photograph after showing support for White Ribbon Scotland by signing the pledge. Thank you to Network Rail for facilitating the event, the Campaign Director from White Ribbon Scotland, all who took part, and everyone who stopped to speak with us.
