  • Feel confident in how to respond to myths and victim blaming

  • Feel equipped to support someone sharing their personal experiences of abuse

Survivors Voice:

“For many women, when you first try and tell someone you are experiencing domestic abuse, no one listens to you. The person you are telling might not recognise what you are experiencing is abuse or know how to ask the right questions. They might not know how to offer the support you need, or know where to refer you for help. And when somebody, finally, does listen, and everyone jumps into action, your voice can get lost again.”

Panel discussion facilitated by Jude Copeland, Cleaver Fulton Rankin

Panel Members will include  Adele O’Grady, KC and Anne Caldwell, Solicitor
