About this event
This session is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and Essex Community Foundation.
Domestic abuse often appears in the news and across media outlets but research shows that the majority of people across communities and workplaces lack any real understanding of what domestic abuse really is, it’s impact and why it’s so complex.
This workshop explores the different types of domestic abuse, the national and regional impact of domestic abuse as well as the different laws and interventions that currently exist to combat it.
Some case studies are explored as well as research into the value of creating grass-roots training in domestic abuse across communities and workplaces that are having contact with both victims and perpetrators of abuse every day but have no understanding or skills to recognize the signs.
