Aims

  1. To raise awareness of domestic abuse as a key issue for all sectors and to strengthen the potential for connecting to tackle it
  2. To highlight the results of a collaborative Public Health campaign approach, Be a Lover not a Fighter.

Event summary

1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men have suffered domestic abuse. Taking a strategic approach to tackling domestic abuse across sectors offers huge opportunities to improve the health and prospects for communities, families and children as well as reducing the impact on the public purse.

This event will provide an arena for senior organisational leaders to connect and debate how to work better together across sectors on domestic abuse. It will include national Key Note speakers including Public Health England and a panel debate hosted by BBC’s Jim Hancock. It will showcase feedback from the recent boundary-pushing Be a Lover not a Fighter campaign in Cheshire and Merseyside, including a presence from the celebrity support for this approach.  

Led by Public Health, it intends to spark action for making domestic abuse a key issue worth tackling and improve future cross-sector working to help end domestic abuse in the North West and beyond.
