Coronavirus has prompted a huge surge in domestic abuse, yet victims of abuse are reporting difficulty in accessing help and support.
Training sessions to help spot signs of domestic abuse and support those affected are available through the J9 Domestic Abuse Initiative. J9 training is open to professionals and anyone working in the community and helps them to recognise domestic abuse and respond to survivors.
The free, hour-long awareness raising sessions will equip attendees with the tools to recognise abuse, respond appropriately and help people access the support they need.
The J9 initiative is named in memory of Janine Mundy, who was killed by her estranged husband whilst he was on Police bail. It was started by her family and the local police in Cambourne, Cornwall, where she lived and aims to raise awareness of domestic abuse and assist victims to access help and support. We remain in contact with her family who give their full support.
