Domestic Abuse: It’s Everybody’s Business is a series of virtual events that run parallel to the 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence campaign, to raise awareness and educate communities about domestic abuse.

The Kent Integrated Domestic Abuse Service (KIDAS) - Clarion Housing Group, Look Ahead, Oasis Domestic Abuse Service and Victim Support - have come together to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to know about, understand and feel empowered to speak out against this destructive social issue. With your support we can ensure every victim across Kent and Medway finds safety. From being introduced to domestic abuse for the first time to professional advice on disclosure, safety planning and creating informed environments, individuals, businesses, community groups, employers and professionals working in the social sector can get a deeper understanding of the issues and impact of domestic abuse.

KIDAS have created an informative, fully flexible virtual event which means you can develop your knowledge and learning at your convenience, wherever you are. Domestic Abuse: It’s Everybody’s Business offers something for everyone, with sessions aimed at different levels of expertise and with different time commitments. Some sessions are as short as 15 minutes while others, from industry experts, are longer (maximum 60 minutes) and more in-depth. Every session contributes to your CPD accreditation.

There will be events and training throughout that are suitable for

  • Businesses
  • Housing providers
  • Health professionals
  • Social workers
  • People working in criminal justice
  • Faith groups
  • Food Bank staff & volunteers
  • Students
  • Education & childcare providers
  • Military personnel
  • Local government employees
  • Support groups
  • Community groups & voluntary agencies
  • Anyone who is interested in creating a safer community for victims of abuse
