Glow – Shining a Light on Domestic Abuse: The Health Edition

About this Event

Join us for our very first virtual conference as we explore the vital role health and dentistry services can play in ending domestic abuse.

Glow is a charity on a mission to end domestic abuse, campaigning for change and providing support throughout Staffordshire and its surrounding areas. We are one of the leading domestic abuse services in North Staffordshire and it's environs.

In 2019 we were successfully selected as 1 of 8 national Pathfinder pilot projects across England to be part of an initiative to improve the response and embed a ‘Whole Health’ approach to domestic abuse. The national Pathfinder pilot was project led by 5 expert partners: Standing Together, Imkaan, Against Violence and Abuse (AVA), IRISi and SafeLives.

We want to share our learning from being part of this exciting project so book your place for our very first virtual conference and join us on our mission to address overcome and end domestic abuse.

Domestic abuse survivors are at the very heart of the conference. They'll be speaking about their experiences and why its vital that health services are able to respond effectively to signs or disclosures of domestic abuse.

Kicking off the conference we’ll hear from Nicole Jacobs, Designate Domestic Abuse Commissioner, who’ll be tackling the issue from a government perspective.

We’ll also be looking at how Glow have helped improve the response by dentistry and mental health services over the past 12 months by hearing from local practitioners in the field. Our team will also be sharing best practice guidance and launching a brand new campaign to support dentistry in helping them tackle domestic abuse called Here to Help.
