Event description
A conference bringing in the best of the best to present and facilitate workshops on looking at the whole picture for the whole family.

About this Event

For 15 years, we have worked with partners to secure the most effective frontline responses to domestic abuse, keeping families safe sooner.

Join us to look forward to the next 15 years, sharing practice and ideas to reflect on how to deliver effective multi agency working. What does it feel like for survivors of domestic abuse? What does the latest research tell us? How are the most innovative practitioners and commissioners responding? And what's the combination of strong, effective, established practice and newer approaches that work to make a difference to the whole family?

What works to end domestic abuse, for everyone, for good?

At SafeLives’ 15th anniversary practice conference, we’ll be discussing all this and more as part of our Whole Picture approach.

Together, we’ll be building understanding of effective multi-agency working, how to effectively challenge perpetrators, how to work with victims and survivors of domestic abuse in a trauma informed way, and how to support recovery - as well as addressing self care for those working in the sector.

Key speakers

We're delighted that key speakers for the conference include:

Nicole Jacobs, Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales

Isabelle Trowler, Chief Social Worker for England (Children and Families)

Samantha Jury-Dada, Girls and Gangs researcher

Joshua Imuere, CEO Art Against Knives

Workshops

We'll also be delivering a series of workshops throughout the day alongside guest speakers and our trusted partners. You'll have the chance to hear about:

Effective multi-agency working

Ambitious, risk-led and highly effective - our pioneering One Front Door multi-agency pilots brought together child safeguarding and domestic abuse, to identify the needs and risks of every family member at the same time. In this workshop, you will hear about the benefits of multi-agency working, making the vital links between the needs of individuals and the families they belong to.

How to work with victims and survivors of domestic abuse in a trauma-informed and holistic way

Learn about our Connect model in West Sussex and Norfolk where we’re trialling innovative responses to domestic abuse. Working closely with survivors and five grassroots domestic abuse specialist services, we’ve designed a package of holistic support focusing on early intervention and supporting people with complex needs, children and young people, couples who stay together and those who are recovering from abuse.

How to effectively challenge and change perpetrator behaviour

We need to change the narrative around domestic abuse, asking ‘why doesn’t he stop?’ not ‘why doesn’t she leave?’ Our Drive project, working in partnership with Respect and Social Finance, is doing this in practice. Working with high risk domestic abuse perpetrators, Drive is building a thorough picture of perpetration and what works to stop someone using abusive behaviour. This interactive workshop will give practitioners insight into the work of Drive and how we build interventions, through multi-agency working, to challenge, disrupt and change perpetrator behaviour. It will also look at the impact this work is having and what we have learnt through our three-year pilot.

Generating the conversation to hear the voices of men and boys

We want to end domestic abuse for everyone and for good. In order to get us there, we need to open up the conversation about abuse and relationships to include men and boys. In 2019, we heard from over 1,000 men and boys – exploring their attitudes to abuse, masculinity and what a ‘healthy’ relationship looks like. We also heard from over 200 male survivors of domestic abuse. Join us to hear about the experiences of male survivors; the thoughts and attitudes of men and boys (11years+) across the country about relationships, and the reflections of those talking to us about behaviour they have used that could have been experienced as abusive.

The importance of co-creation and a survivor led approach

Learn about the power of co-creation – developing an environment and direction that is designed, developed and informed by those with lived experience. In this workshop with SafeLives staff and Pioneers, you’ll explore why developing an ‘authentic culture’ is so important, share learning and explore new ways of making survivor voice the heart of all you do.

Creating a culture of support and self-care, for you and others

Building a culture of self-care can be tough. A demanding work environment, vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, burn out and work-related stress can all negatively impact other areas of your life. This workshop will explore options for self-care and provide a chance for you as practitioners to consider and share what helps you support others, whilst maintaining your own health and wellbeing.

As an organisation we shout from the rooftops about how brilliant our frontline practitioners are and this conference will be no different. We will be celebrating great practice from around the country.

Audience

Any frontline practitioner wanting to learn more about domestic abuse and effective multi agency working.

Venue

We’ll be holding our conference this year at the Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre. This venue is celebrated for its commitment to sustainability and reinvestment in the local area.
