This is a free event.
Are you a DHR chair or involved in the review process? Would you like to know how to ensure children and young people’s experiences are safely incorporated into reviews?
AVA and AAFDA (Advocacy After Fatal Domestic Abuse) have been funded by MOPAC (The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime) to develop a model of support for children who have experienced domestic homicide, with accompanying resources and training for stakeholders and DHR chairs.
At this free seminar you will:
- Learn about the impacts of domestic homicide on children
- Understand how trauma manifests in children’s behaviour and the impacts this may have on their testimony
- Hear about new research from the University of Stirling on young people’s involvement with Domestic Homicide Reviews
- Hear from experts by experience discussing their views on the review process and how they would have liked to have been involved
- Learn about the new AAFDA support model and how to refer
- Have an opportunity to ask questions and develop a plan for how you can meaningfully ensure children and young people’s voices are heard
This event is aimed at:
- DHR chairs and panel members
- Family Liaison Officers
- Community Safety Partnerships and Panels
- DA commissioners
If you do not fall into one of these categories, please email Joanna.email@example.com as we need to prioritize places for those directly involved in the DHR review process.
Note: Lunch will be provided and the event will be filmed.
