Domestic Abuse

Golding, B. (Speaker), Sue Peckover (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation

Description

The talk was about the challenges of providing services for women and children experiencing domestic abuse in this age of austerity. They presented some sobering statistics - such as that 1 in 4 women experience domestic abuse in their lives - and acknowledged that the system had come a long way, "from silence to awareness", but needed to come further. Government cuts, they said, are impacting disproportionately on services for women and children.
