Refuge and NSPCC research findings conference

Meeting the needs of children living with domestic violence in London

A morning conference to share the findings of Refuge and the NSPCC’s research

Tuesday 22nd November 2011, Barbican Cinema 3, Barbican Centre, EC2Y 8DS

New research from Refuge and the NSPCC shows that despite improvements in approaches to addressing domestic violence in recent years, the needs of children and young people who have lived with domestic violence have not been addressed.

Chaired by Zoe Williams of the Guardian, the conference will share key findings from the research and debate how services can work together to improve outcomes for children and young people whilst ensuring their voices are heard and acted upon. A panel of young people will give their views on some of the key challenges the research identified.

Keynote speaker: Lynne Featherstone MP, Minister for Equalities
