“Events like today are absolutely fantastic because that whole community response, Network response, is really crucial if we are going to do better to support those who are subjected to abuse; but also makes visible the fact that there are perpetrators in our community and we need to have interventions that cut across all of society; everything from our legal system, employment environments and right up to social work, all areas. So this is really walking the talk in terms of what we need to do!” Sarah Benson, CEO Womens’ Aid. 18.11.2022. Community Response to Domestic Abuse Western Regional Network’s National Conference
