A domestic abuse conference for practitioners, policy makers, academics, commissioners and survivors was held on Wednesday 9th March 2016
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 were keen 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 showcased some of the ground-breaking research and practice taking place across the county.
