Women’s rights champion and campaigner against domestic violence, Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Chris Cutland will be speaking on Saturday (March 7) about the latest support for women at risk of crime in the city and county.
Ms Cutland will highlight numerous important achievements now in place in Nottinghamshire at a free drop-in event at Gedling Borough Council’s Civic Centre in Arnold in celebration of International Women’s Day. Organised by Councillor Roxanne Ellis, it will run from 10am until 4pm.
Since Commissioner Paddy Tipping appointed Ms Cutland as his Deputy in 2012, they have focused on a number of issues with a view to achieving greater protection of victims and encouraging the police service to embed better practices. Their efforts have included putting domestic and sexual violence high on the agenda and bringing partners together to co-commission support services in the city and county. Ms Cutland has also worked with the Commissioner on prioritising hate crime which will later include harassment of women.
Women are invited to attend the event at any time during the day, with organisations offering advice on health, training, employment and skills, leisure events, parenting support, crime reduction and benefits. Free supervised play activities will be available.
