Guildford and Waverley Community Safety Partnerships and the South-West Surrey Domestic Abuse Service are hosting public webinars on domestic abuse on November 29.

They report that one in three women will experience domestic abuse at some point in their adult lives and as many as one in six men.

The Costs of Freedom report in 2014 noted: “We know that communities are often the first to know about abuse, and that they can act as gate openers or gate closers in terms of help seeking.”

The webinars aim to raise awareness of domestic abuse and the local support services available across South-West Surrey and provide participants with the knowledge to: 

  • Understand why we need to break the silence on domestic abuse
  • Be confident to recognise indicators of domestic abuse and in particular coercive control
  • Know how to support a friend, family member or work colleague that may be experiencing domestic abuse
  • Consider becoming an local Domestic Abuse Champion

Speakers will be from the South West Surrey Domestic Abuse Service and Surrey Police. The webinars will take place at 1pm and 7pm and will last approximately one hour.
