The 40th anniversary of Women’s Aid is an opportunity to celebrate a movement which has saved countless lives and set the standard for domestic violence services across the world. It is also time – with a general election approaching – to develop a shared vision of the domestic violence services of the future, as well as identifying and addressing the key challenges we face in the present.
• Day One is for everyone who tackles or prevents domestic violence in their work. Set firmly in a multi-agency context, it will provide analysis and ideas on key policy issues and challenges affecting all agencies.
• Day Two provides a space for Women’s Aid members only to focus on the practical steps needed to survive and thrive into the future, sharing best practice and building on success.
