Public Health England has supported two initiatives to raise awareness and tackle the problem of domestic violence:
- the ‘Intervention Initiative toolkit’ – an educational toolkit and programme to encourage students to stand up against and prevent sexual coercion and domestic abuse in university settings. The programme is to be used by universities, ideally as part of their curriculum.
- the ‘violence toolkit for business’ – a guide and toolkit aimed at businesses that lack an infrastructure to deal with domestic violence. This provides resources for businesses to take part in the ‘16 Days of Action’ campaign (25 November to 10 December) and to raise awareness of an issue that impacts health, wellbeing, absence and turn over in the workplace.
