Domestic Abuse: It's everybody's business

Published: 10/11/2020

Domestic abuse is everybody’s business, and everyone can make a difference.

Lockdown, social distancing and social restrictions heighten the risk for victims of abuse and make access to vital support services even harder to reach. With your support we can ensure that every victim across Kent and Medway finds safety. 

Take part in a programme of free virtual events to learn about, understand and feel empowered to speak out against this devastating social issue and support those that need help:

Coinciding with the 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence campaign, this the pick and mix programme of free online events offers everything from first introductions to managing disclosure, safety planning advice and how to create psychologically informed environments, all at a time that suits you. 

This ‘design-your-own-conference’ virtual event programme has been created in response to Covid-19, in a way that everyone and anyone can easily access and participate, to bring as many people as possible together so that, jointly, we can drive real change for people experiencing domestic abuse. 

This series of events is brought to you by the Kent Integrated Domestic Abuse Service (KIDAS) partnership between Clarion Housing Group, Look Ahead, Oasis Domestic Abuse Service and Victim Support and generously funded by Kent County Council.
