Domestic Violence Engagement Event
Date and time: 6th of March 2015, 9.30am-1.00pm (2-part event)
Venue: London Metropolitan University, Holloway Road
We would like to invite you to attend/ have input in our event on domestic violence in refugee communities on the 6th of March, just ahead of International Women’s Day.
This is a 2-part event. The morning event will see refugee community groups who have already set up or are interested in offering support to those affected by domestic violence meeting with existing ‘mainstream’ women’s groups. We aim to raise awareness of what each other is doing, think about how we can work together and share strategies for best supporting vulnerable women.
The morning event will take place on the 6th of March (9.30- 1.00pm).
Following on from the morning’s event, we will offer lunch followed by a performance and talk by Praxis Family Care, a support group for the rehabilitation of trafficked women and survivors or gender-based violence, and their children.
This will run from 2.00-4.00pm.
