Lincolnshire businesses re being invited to take part in the county’s first domestic abuse hybrid conference.
Organised by the Lincolnshire Domestic Abuse Partnership, the conference is on Tuesday 29 November live online and at The Showroom in Lincoln from 9.15am to 3pm. It will feature a range of guest speakers, including representatives from Lincoln City Football Club and Lincolnshire Co-op, who will be talking about the work they have done with their staff and how this has been of benefit.
Cllr Mrs Patricia Bradwell, Lincolnshire County Council’s executive member for safer communities, said: “Identifying domestic abuse is part of a business’s legal safeguarding responsibility. The Lincolnshire Domestic Abuse Partnership can provide free advice and support to give your business the confidence to raise the issue of domestic abuse, helping increase the wellbeing and mental health of your workforce.
“This work will help businesses to identify when members of their workforce may be at risk of domestic abuse or if a person is choosing to abuse. In addition, it explains how to listen to their concerns and support them accordingly.
“The conference will be an opportunity to hear how some of our local businesses have already taken steps to raise awareness of domestic abuse within their workforce and the positive impact this has had. Hopefully, other businesses will learn from their experiences and see the benefits of taking a proactive approach.”
The conference is aimed at senior managers and corporate leaders, as well as those that work in human resources and health and safety departments. The event is free to attend, but places must be booked in advance by those attending either online or at the venue. You can find further details on the guest speakers and reserve your place here.
