‘What works? Domestic abuse and the whole family’: SafeLives conference 2020

For 15 years, we have worked with partners to secure the most effective frontline responses to domestic abuse, keeping families safe sooner.

Join us to look forward to the next 15 years, sharing practice and ideas to look at the very best in multi agency working. What does it feel like for survivors of domestic abuse? What does the latest research tell us? How are the most innovative practitioners and commissioners responding? And what's the combination of strong, effective, established practice and newer approaches that work to make a difference to the whole family?

What works to end domestic abuse, for everyone, for good?

At SafeLives’ landmark 15th anniversary practice conference, we’ll be discussing all this and more as part of our Whole Picture approach.

Together, we’ll be building an understanding of effective multi-agency working, how to effectively challenge perpetrators, how to work with victims and survivors of domestic abuse in a trauma informed way, and how to support recovery - as well as addressing self care for those working in the sector.

We’ll be delivering these workshops alongside our trusted partners and guest speakers – to be announced soon.

As an organisation, we shout from the rooftops about how brilliant our frontline practitioners are and this conference will be no different. We will be celebrating great practice from around the country.


Any frontline practitioner and commissioner wanting to learn more about domestic abuse and effective multi agency working.
