A focus on Domestic Abuse | An Employer’s Guide
According to the PSNI, in the 12 months from October 2022 to September 2023, there were 33,229 domestic abuse incidents in Northern
Ireland, an increase of 126 (0.4 per cent) on the previous 12 months. Domestic abuse takes many forms – physical, emotional, psychological and financial. The Equality and Human Rights Commission states that 75% of victim-survivors of domestic abuse are targeted at work. Victims and abusers make up members of the workforce and this can be a complex issue for business.
This session will take participants on a journey of discovery to challenge their perceptions and thoughts around domestic abuse, help delegates understand the complexities surrounding domestic abuse, and importantly share what employers can do to support their people.
