The Government has set out a clear commitment to tackle domestic violence with the drafting of the Domestic Abuse Bill 2018
and almost £19 million of funding
already pledged to expand support for survivors of domestic abuse services.
This conference provides an essential update on the latest legislation and the potential changes on the horizon outlined in the Domestic Abuse Bill to provide better protection to victims and bring more perpetrators to justice.
Attend to better understand how to promote awareness of domestic violence and to identify, protect and support victims. Learn how to provide an effective response to perpetrators from initial contact through to conviction and rehabilitation.
Hear from colleagues from health, the police, local authorities, housing, probation and prosecution
about how to improve consistency and better performance in the response to domestic abuse through an effective multi-agency approach.
