Bitesize Awareness Sessions –
recognising the implications for staff members and customers
One in three women and one in six men are likely to experience some form of domestic abuse or coercive control from a partner during their lifetime. There is no discrimination as to age, sex, social status or same sex relationships. That means that statistically you, a family member, a work colleague, a team member or clients you are working with is likely to be experiencing some form of domestic abuse right now.
