Description

BOOKING HAS NOW CLOSED

As part of Domestic Abuse Awareness Week 2017, SOS Domestic Abuse Projects is offering a series of free workshops to increase knowledge and awareness of domestic abuse in Southend.

Domestic Abuse - Civil Remedies is a half-day workshop, giving an overview of the civil remedies available for victims of domestic abuse who do not wish to follow the criminal justice path. The session will focus on Non-Molestation Orders, Occupation Orders and Prohibitive Steps Orders. It will be led by a local firm of solicitors specialising in family law.

By the end of the session participants will:

  • Understand what types of civil injunctions are available for victims of domestic abuse.
  • Recognise when it is appropriate to apply for a civil injunction.
  • Understand the process of applying for a civil injunction.
  • Gain a greater understanding of the eligibility criteria for Legal Aid.
  • Know where to direct victims ineligible for Legal Aid but unable to afford legal advice.

This session is for practitioners who work with victims of domestic abuse and already have an understanding of its impact and/or attendees who have already completed basic domestic abuse awareness training.

This is a free workshop but non-attendance will incur a fee of £50. Attendees must work or volunteer within Southend Borough.
