A domestic abuse conference for practitioners, policy makers, academics, commissioners and survivors.
Wednesday 9th March 2016
9.30am – 4.45pm
The Albert Hall, Nottingham
A great deal has been done in recent years to recognise and tackle domestic violence and abuse against women and girls. As part of International Women’s Day 2016 we would like to celebrate the many successes in this field in terms of partnership working, research, innovative interventions and, not least, changes in the law to acknowledge the wider nature of abuse and coercion. The partners in Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City have a long history in the provision of wide-ranging support for survivors of domestic abuse. This is why, as well as hearing from key national and international speakers in the field, the event will showcase some of the ground-breaking research and practice taking place across the county. But there is still more to do. Please join us to identify what still needs to change, what works and how we can share best practice.
Find out about:
• the new coercive control offence;
• the distinct characteristics of ‘medium risk’, complex, repeat survivors, and the implications for assessment, interventions and measures of ‘success’ ;
• local work with perpetrators which contributes to a co-ordinated community response;
• how effective partnership working can strengthen the front line response and improve long term outcomes.
