Spurgeons Children’s Charity will be tackling the issue of a whole family approach to domestic violence and abuse as they host a work shop at this year’s National Children’s Commissioning and Contracting Training Conference (NCCTC) event in Derbyshire.
As a national children’s charity, we support vulnerable children and families across England through a number of intervention and support services. Our specialist DVA team delivers bespoke, complex solutions that reflect the needs of individuals in need of support.
Our whole family approach recognises responsibilities to all individuals within the family unit. With extensive experience of delivering positive outcomes, we believe this holistic approach to services for families affected by DVA can support people who wish to separate safely from their partner or those who want to find a way to safely stay in their relationship.
The workshop at NCCTC will look to further explore this approach within the context of the national domestic violence agenda; review the different approaches to tackling the issue and identify solutions for supporting children and families.
An estimated 1.9 million adults aged 16 to 59 years experienced domestic abuse last year (according to the 2017 Crime Survey for England and Wales).
