Ending Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence in Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly Conference

21 August 2023

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (CIOS) are hosting a conference about preventing harm and tackling domestic abuse and sexual violence (DASV) and violence against women and girls (VAWG).

Book here to attend.

Safer Cornwall and CIOS Safeguarding Adults Board (SAB) and CIOS Our Safeguarding Children Partnership (OSCP) are delivering this conference in partnership, following on from last year’s conference focused on the theme of mental health: ‘Ask, Listen, Act.’

This year’s cross-partnership event is taking place on 11 October 2023 at the Pavilion Centre, Royal Cornwall Showcase in Wadebridge. Nicole Jacobs, Domestic Abuse Commissioner is confirmed as a keynote speaker.

Focusing on promoting healthy relationships through the ages, this one-day event is critical for raising awareness, sharing knowledge and advocating for positive change. It will bring together experts, activists, policymakers and survivors of violence and abuse to discuss various aspects and positive solutions to end DASV and VAWG and promote gender equality. A day of inspirational presentations is planned about working together to make real, sustainable change to improve services and people’s lives; putting the voice of victims and survivors at the heart of prevention strategies; and engendering culture change to address the root causes of what is a ‘public emergency’.

This conference follows the launch earlier this year of two new five-year strategies, which both have at their heart the core message that ending DASV and VAWG in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is ‘everyone’s business’.
