CAMPAIGNS AND ACTIVITIES

Researchers from the Centre have presented at academic, policy and practice-related conferences. We have also ran awareness raising campaigns, knowledge exchange activities including film screenings, interactive workshops, and case studies at events that involve our volunteers and victim-survivors. Details of these international, national and regional events and activities can be found in our research sections  

The Centre has facilitated workshops with volunteers to develop a petition ‘Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse in Later Life’, which has been debated several times at the Senedd.

campaigning

We have taken part in multiple campaigning events including: the White Ribbon event, Elder Abuse Day, 16 days of activism against gender-based violence and an National annual 50+ Forum event at the Botanic Gardens.

sharing our findings

Researchers have shared the findings around older people’s experiences of help-seeking on domestic abuse, civil and criminal justice responses and safeguarding. The learning is part of a uk-wide training package for strategic leads and practitioners, which includes access to free publications, guidance and practitioner toolkits
