The postponed Understanding Domestic Abuse within the Armed Forces Community conference is now due to take place virtually on 7 October 2020. The conference, funded by Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT), will share insights from new research undertaken within the Armed Forces community into domestic violence and abuse (DVA) and explore how we can advance methods used to improve the support offered to serving and ex-serving personnel and their families. The conference will include:
- Findings from the FiMT funded project by Dr. Emma Williamson, University of Bristol
- Findings from the King’s College London project undertaken by Dr. Deirdre MacManus
- Findings from Dr Harriet Gray’s research on Responses to Domestic Abuse in the British Armed Forces
- Information on the Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) Domestic Abuse Strategy and update to Policy Guidance (JSP913)
