Collective Efficacy, Community Safety, Domestic Abuse during and after C19. Collaboration event with Suffolk university (DARNet) led by Dr Olumide Adisa.
What does an effective community response to DA look like? How has the pandemic, and ensuing economic downturn, impacted existing community responses, and how have service providers negotiated these challenges? How can we empower and equip communities to deal with DA in the future? How might we use the evidence base behind emerging community-focused approaches in responding to DA?
This first event will explore these questions and more, featuring an exciting line-up of facilitators and contributors, including the Designate Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales, Nicole Jacobs. Professor Liz Kelly will explore how community-level factors can expand or constrain a victim’s ‘space for action’ to disclose abuse.
Dr Ruth Weir will share her research on why the links between neighbourhood-level factors, community assets and DA matter. While DARNet members, Dr Katherine Allen, Katie Tyrrell and Suffolk’s DA Champions Coordinators will share a recent evaluation and learning on the DA Champions initiative. Meena Kumari will also share her insights of organising a collective during C19. Both Dr Olumide Adisa and Dr Roxanne Khan will share their findings from a commissioned mapping research from the accounts of multi-agency participants supporting minoritised communities. Guddy Burnet and Katie London from Standing Together Against Domestic Violence will share insights on their community coordination work across five London boroughs during C19. Also, this event will feature contributions from a service provider on their experiences delivering Anchor+, an independently evaluated programme for migrant women with additional needs (mental health, alcohol addiction, and drug misuse).
This event has been supported by Suffolk County Council and UKRI.
