White Ribbon Scotland Status
“Not everyone commits violence but everyone has a role in helping prevent it”
GCCSA are delighted to say that we achieved White Ribbon Status and were formally presented with the award by White Ribbon Scotland at a small ceremony on Friday 10 December 2021. The College received the award in recognition of the work that it has done, led by GCCSA, to campaign and raise awareness of all forms of gender-based violence.

Presenting the award, Davy Thompson, Campaign Director White Ribbon Scotland said, “Three student teams in a row building on the work of each other to produce a series of events which together have delivered a sustained commitment to addressing violence against women by engaging men in the conversation. Delivering with the support of the College senior management team and staff and reaching out to the student body and beyond. An effort deserving of the award of White Ribbon Status. The initial Project stage complete, Glasgow Clyde College now moves forward with a sustainable GCCSA Led White Ribbon Campaign. Congratulations on your award and thank you for all your hard work.”
The work hasn’t finished now that White Ribbon Status has been achieved, and the team are committed to a range of activities going forward to ensure that the College is a safe community for staff and students. You can show support and sign the White Ribbon Pledge here, make sure that you attach it to Glasgow Clyde College so that you can also support our status campaign.
