Safety and the Justice System

On 25th June 2021, join us to find out from the Crown Prosecution Service how to stay safe, outside and inside the home and how prosecutions are pursued.

Please note: this is a hybrid seminar with a mix of online and physical attendance. Places are reserved at our hub for those who are in situations where it is not safe for them to view the content online ie they may be with an abuser. Please book an online place here if you are not at risk. If you are at risk please email us in confidence info@wayfinderwoman.com or phone 01323 887161 so we can reserve you a spot in our hub.

We are delighted to work with the Crown Prosecution Service in putting together this important interactive seminar on women’s safety. We will be talking about Hate Crime – what is it? An attack of women of colour, of transgender? We will be exploring the issue of violence against women and girls and how this is prosecuted.

We will be hearing from Kate Brown , Chief Crown Prosecutor, Donna East, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor and VAWG Lead and Richard Dawes, District Crown Prosecutor and Hate Crime Lead. There will be plenty of opportunity for you to ask questions and take part in discussions around these topics and how you can stay safe and support others to stay safe.
