Corona Advice Webinar: Supporting those facing domestic abuse 

Supporting those facing domestic abuse. Wednesday 10 June
It has been both speculated and observed how lockdown creates the conditions in which domestic abuse thrives. What are the signs we should look for? How can we help those who are suffering? What support and resources can we draw on if we feel out of our depth? This webinar looked into these topics through a conversation between Rachel Stone, BUGB Safeguarding Team Leader and Bekah Legg, Director of Restored, an organisation that aims to equip the church help end violence against women and girls.
