How safe are women?

Women’s Safety Seminar sees CPS answer pressing questions. Book your spot now. Knowledge is Power!

Are you concerned about the rise in domestic abuse against women during the pandemic? Or the increase in hate crime?  Do you know what hate crime is? If you want to know how to help women in these situations, and how offenders are prosecuted, then join the free WayfinderWoman Seminar on Women’s Safety. Held online on Friday 25th June from 11.00am, with in-person spots at the WayfinderWoman hub for those who may be at risk at home, it will cover: an introduction to the Crown Prosecution Service, identifying hate crimes, what is violence against women and girls, what is domestic abuse, and how do we prosecute offenders?

Having just received the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, we are delighted to work with the CPS to bring awareness to these important topics. We are excited to hear from Kate Brown Chief Crown Prosecutor, Donna East Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor/VAWG Lead, and Richard Dawes District Crown Prosecutor/Hate Crime Lead. There will be opportunities for you to ask questions, take part in discussions, and information on how you can stay safe and support others to stay safe.

As our speaker Kate Brown said, ‘what stands out to me among all this anguish is not the abuse and the violence but the resilience and courage of the women…who speak out to report this crime.’

After introductions and finding more about how the CPS works, we will focus on Hate Crime starting at 11.45am and Violence Against Women and Young Girls, with a focus on domestic abuse starting at 12.30.  You can join us at any time.

Book your place today, and together we can improve the lives of women everywhere.
