The SPAR Retail Group has also pledged to take action against Gender Based Violence (GBV) by offering tangible support to victims on a sustainable basis. They plan to help END Gender Based Violence by using their vast footprint and media reach to offer GBV victims access to life-changing help. SPAR have partnered with LifeLine, a highly established and resourceful trauma counselling call-centre, to provide immediate and professional support.
Gender Based Violence can happen to anyone - women, men or children and is never acceptable. If you are a victim or if you see someone being abused, please reach out by visiting the website here: www.spar.co.za/gbv
