GWA Conference: Understanding Coercive Control–the New Law & Impacts on Local Resources

9 Jul 2019 Article Image

** THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED - JOIN THE WAIT LIST ** In partnership with Scottish Women's Aid, we are holding a conference event on Tuesday 20th August, 2019, from 09:30 to 14:30, at Curl Aberdeen.

“Understanding  Coercive Control – The New Law and Impacts on Local Resources” focuses on coercive control, the ground breaking new Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Act and how it will impact local responses to women, children and young people affected by domestic abuse.

We are delighted to have as speakers on the day: Dr Marsha Scott, CEO, Scottish Women’s Aid who, working with women’s aid groups across Scotland, was instrumental in informing the new law; and Luke Hart who, with his brother, Ryan, lost the greatest part of their lives to domestic abuse and are now committed to raising awareness and speaking out against male violence towards women through their coercive control initiative, Coco Awareness. Find out more about Luke & Ryan's work here: https://www.cocoawareness.co.uk/
