Anyone can be a victim of Domestic abuse, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexuality or background.
With shocking statistics revealing that domestic violence has surged nationally since the start of the corona-virus lockdown, VAC’s Safeguarding Lead talks to Brian Reilly, Training manager at the National Centre for Domestic Violence.
This award-winning free service allows anyone who has recently suffered or been threatened with domestic abuse or violence to apply for an emergency court injunction, usually issued within 24 hours of making contact.
They work in close partnership with the police, solicitors and other support agencies such as Refuge and Women’s Aid to help victims obtain speedy protection. Please email Brian Reilly at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and training for your organisation.
