WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF ATTENDING?
You can curate your own event, picking the sessions that are important and relevant to you, that you can dip into to suit your schedule. It’s an innovative approach and an opportunity to drive the dialogue forward.
There are 16 sessions over the course of 12 days from an amazing array of presenters; we have experts in their field, incredibly brave survivors talking about their experiences and local service providers all coming together to provide an insight on where we go from here. How do we collectively make things better than they are right now?
We really want you to be a part of this conversation.
Help us to make domestic abuse ‘Everybody’s Business’ – participating in these events will increase the knowledge, empathy and understanding of domestic abuse across Kent and Medway; enabling us all to help create safe, enduring communities where people can live free from abuse.
