On the 26th November, Tranmere Rovers’ home match against Torquay United will be dedicated to raising awareness about domestic abuse.
Rovers will be signing the Football United pledge.
This is a club commitment that states the club will not tolerate any form of violence or abuse. Fans are also invited to sign this pledge online at: https://www.womensaid.org.uk/what-we-do/football-united/fans/
Tranmere will be hosting special guests on match-day who are working with the charity Women’s Aid and the Wirral Council’s 2020 Plan to stop domestic abuse.
Women’s Aid defines domestic abuse as an incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening, degrading and violent behaviour, including sexual violence, by a partner or ex-partner.
It is also very common. Victims can be of any gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, ethnic or religious background. More information about domestic abuse can be found here: https://www.womensaid.org.uk/information-support/what-is-domestic-abuse/
