November news round up



11th November 2019


Sue Penna

Welcome to our November news round up.

Plenty to talk about this month, including an extremely important social media campaign, as well as some exciting news for the new year. 

We’ll also be at the Youth Justice Conference in Birmingham on the 3rd-4th December. If you’ll be there, make sure you come and say hello to our Director of Training and Development, Jo, on stand 16. 

16 Days of Action: 25 November – 10 December 2019

The international campaign the 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence, is aimed at businesses that lack an infrastructure to deal with the large-scale problem that is domestic violence.

As it stands, companies can do more to aid their employees who endure domestic violence, train those who witness it, and to protect staff as a whole, with the goal of securing safety and mitigating financial loss.

Join us on Social Media where we’re getting involved. (A big thank you to everyone that kindly provided a quote for us to use!)
