Domestic Abuse Awareness webinar – 20th September

Domestic Abuse Awareness webinar – 20th September

In 2021/2022, 64,807 incidents of domestic abuse were reported in Scotland, however it is estimated that only around 20% of incidents are reported, meaning the problem is much wider than the statistics would suggest.

Many housing professionals will have to deal with customers who have encountered domestic abuse, and it is crucial that they can help in the quickest and most effective way possible in these circumstances.

SHARE has teamed up with Glasgow Women’s Aid to deliver a webinar, free to members. The webinar will provide you with the information you need to identify domestic abuse and the role that housing organisations can play in helping victims rebuild their lives. The session will also consider the future changes to expect when part two of the Domestic Abuse (Protection) (Scotland) Act 2021 legislation becomes effective.

Taking place online on 20th September at 11am, the hour-long session will provide housing professionals with an update on the challenges that domestic abuse victims, and those that support them, are currently facing, alongside good practice that housing organisations can adopt to help those experiencing domestic abuse in a timely and meaningful way.
