Event Type: Conference
Date: 11 November 2016

Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) is prevalent, both in Britain and around the world.  Last year an estimated 1.4 million women experienced some form of domestic abuse in the UK, whilst 31% young women aged 18-24 report having experienced sexual abuse in childhood.  Globally, approximately 35% of all women have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner at some point in their lives. 

The Conference aimed to raise awareness to a number of these area’s for delegates to gain a better understanding of the impact of domestic abuse and how early intervention and prevention can reduce the risk of domestic homicide.
