Safer Plymouth Webinar on the Domestic Abuse Toolkit for Employers – 21st April 11:00am-12.30pm
- An estimated 2.4 million adults aged 16 to 74 experienced domestic abuse in the last year.
- Two women a week are killed by a current or former partner in England and Wales.
Domestic abuse is a hugely destructive problem and employers have an important role to play in society’s response to it. Often workplaces are the only safe place for victims, offering hope of escaping abuse if the signs are spotted – but these spaces are now less accessible for those forced to work from home during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Public Health England partnered with Business in the Community to produce ‘Domestic Abuse: a toolkit for employers’ to help any organisation make a commitment to respond to the risk of domestic abuse. It also offers guidance on how to build an approach that ensures all employees feel supported and empowered by their workplace to deal with domestic abuse. Safer Plymouth will be promoting this toolkit with local employers as we see them as key partners in addressing this important issue.
