Date: Thursday 23rd November 2023 Time: 10:00am- 15:30pm
The NHS England London Safeguarding Team are hosting a conference on Thursday 23rd November to coincide with the national Carers’ Right Day, and mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on the 25th November.
The issue of carers as potential victims and/ or perpetrators of domestic abuse is often unrecognised and is increasingly featured in domestic homicide reviews.

Aim of the conference: To equip professionals at all levels with tips on how to improve their practice and strategies regarding violence against women and girls in the carer’s context.
- To raise awareness about violence against women and girls in the carer’s context
- To improve identification of carers, particularly in the VAWG / domestic abuse context
- Encourage professional curiosity regarding VAWG in the carer’s context
- Increase knowledge regarding support services and referral processes within London
