Children and young people experience gender based violence in their own right. Responses to these experiences must be tailored to their needs. On the 29th of November we will address this topic this with a FREE seminar at The Foundry.
As part of UN Women’s 16 days of activism to eliminate violence against women and girls, AVA are hosting a seminar on tackling children and young people experience of gender based violence. It will discuss what changes there have been made in policy and practice to improve the response including what Domestic abuse could mean for children and young people.
Lunch will be provided at 1pm and the seminar will start at 1.30pm.
The seminar will include presentations from AVA Project, Limes college, the Children’s Commission office and Experts by Experience.
AVA has a long-standing record of working with children and young people on how they are affected by gender based violence, leading the way in recognising them as victims of domestic abuse in their own right. We champion children and young people’s participation in modeling services and support. We have developed a best practice toolkit called Safe and Equal. During this seminar will also showcase our relaunch of our Prevention Platform – ASK AVA.
The seminar is part of our Ascent work, which is funded by London Councils. It is free and open to people from organisations providing service to those affected by domestic and sexual violence in London. There are a limited number of spaces at the seminar. Places will be allocated according to funding priorities such as certain borough engagement and job roles.
This seminar is free of charge but depends on eligibility. If you would like to attend this training please fill out this survey to assess your eligibility for a place. Applications will close on November 22nd. You will be informed if you are successful soon after.
