Did you know . . .
About this Event
The cost of domestic abuse to business is estimated at £14 billion a year ( 2019 Home Office Report), with a National social and economic cost of around £66 billion per year (January 2019).
It is obvious that domestic abuse will have a significant impact on someone's wellbeing and in turn this will impact on the business.
This awareness session looks at what domestic abuse is, the impact it has and its complexity. We will also look at how embedding a culture of awareness and understanding around domestic abuse not only benefits an organisation itself and individuals but ripples out into the community.
