Date: Tuesday 28th March 2017
Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Venue: Drama Hall at Doncaster College, The Hub, Chappell Dr, Doncaster DN1 2RF
The event will draw on findings from a two-year evaluation of an innovative domestic abuse perpetrator programme in Doncaster. The programme was run by Foundation and the evaluation undertaken by The University of Sheffield and funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Public Health Practice Evaluation Scheme (PHPES).The evaluation was developed collaboratively between the research team and the programme staff – which helped gain valuable insights into the programme.
Our Keynote speaker, Professor Nicky Stanley will share her work about effective components of domestic abuse interventions for children and parents.
Domestic abuse is a significant public health issue affecting individuals and communities. There is as yet limited understanding about how community-based perpetrators domestic abuse programmes can be put into practice to bring about change. Through this event, we hope to provide an opportunity for interaction and discussion to interested groups including those who deliver domestic abuse perpetrator programmes, victim support services, voluntary organisations providing support to victims and perpetrators, public health practitioners, service user groups (victims and perpetrators), and members of the criminal justice system. The aim of the event is to explore:
- What is the current provision of domestic violence services in Yorkshire and Humber and how can this be improved?
- What should a perpetrator programme look like and what should it include?
- How can perpetrator programmes be co-ordinated with other domestic abuse services?
- How can we inform future commissioning decisions for domestic abuse?
The event will also provide you with an opportunity to listen to leading academics, domestic abuse practitioners, public health practitioners, and commissioners from Yorkshire and Humber.
The event is free to attend and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
