Local partnerships are the key to tackling domestic abuse, but we know successful partnerships don't just happen. Making them work without coordination is very difficult.
Hundreds of Domestic Violence Coordinators around the country work to strengthen their community's response to domestic abuse, often with little support or certainty about the future of their post.
The Domestic Violence Coordinators Network is there to support, represent, and connect the individuals in this critical, specialist role.
Why join the network?
As well as exclusive access to expert resources and invitations to DVCN conferences and other events, network membership gives you:
- two national conferences per year
- space to reflect on and share your practice
- networking opportunities
- strategies to guard your independence and increase influence
- a stronger voice, through our lobbying on local and national issues relating to domestic violence
Forthcoming DVCN Conference
Responding to Multiple Disadvantage: Intersectionality in Policy and Practice - June 14th 2017, London
The conference will explore the concept of ‘intersectionality’ in all its facets as it becomes more and more prominent in discussions around violence against women and girls (VAWG) policy development and service delivery and how best to meet the unique needs and experiences of all survivors.
