The Purple Pledge – Domestic Abuse & Employment Conference

27th October 2023

Whether you are an employee or employer domestic abuse is something you need to know about, you should be able to recognise and offer support to empower victims and survivors. The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 and the Victims Bill clearly set out definitions and clarity for employees, employers, victims, and survivors of domestic abuse.

About this event

The cost of domestic abuse was estimated to be approximately £66bn for victims of domestic abuse in England and Wales for the year ending March 2017.  This hasn’t decreased and following the pandemic, and in the midst of a cost of living crisis, workplaces are continuing to be vital safe havens for many.  By everyone becoming better informed about domestic abuse we are helping to protect all victims and survivors.

Our conference will bring together various aspects of domestic abuse that you should know how to support in your workplace, in your community, with friends and family.

Join us on 27th October to hear from:

  • Victims and survivors
  • Prominent changemakers
  • Professionals in the domestic abuse field
  • Practical demonstrations
