They will highlight how you can help ensure male victims and their children in your local community escape. This includes setting up male-victim friendly services and public communications campaigns through to explaining the experiences and barriers these victims face. The academics will also set out their latest research findings.
This is the sixth annual conference (all previous five have been sold out) with places for over 100 delegates. The 2017 conference was CPD accredited (six points) and we are awaiting for confirmation for 2018.
Who should attend
Those working in community safety, public health, social services, domestic abuse, the legal system (police, solicitors, CPS, probation), adult & children safeguarding, public health, housing associations, health service, victim support, anti-social behaviour, men’s health & welfare, equality & diversity, voluntary/third sector, students, academics & researchers.
