Approximately 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime. And many of us will either work with a colleague or know someone, who has been impacted by abuse. We may even have lived experience ourselves.
As a society, we recognise that domestic abuse needs a co-ordinated community approach, with support at work playing a key role. The criminal justice system can't tackle this issue alone.
In this webinar we'll look at how we can create a work culture where it's safe to come forward to talk about abuse and access support. We also look at examples of the support available through the Bank Workers Charity.
