This is a one year funded project to develop a good practice guide to assist faith leaders and domestic violence service providers to provide safe responses to survivors of domestic violence and their child(ren) and enable them to know more about what interventions can be made to hold abusers / perpetrators responsible for their abusive behaviour.
The good practice guide will detail the important role faith communities have through their interactions with children and young people in challenging, preventing and educating them about domestic violence.
GLDVP will also develop and run training for faith community leaders and domestic violence service providers to help build partnerships and understanding.
In July 2005 a roundtable event was held at City Hall where faith leaders from London’s main religious were invited to discuss their role in reducing and preventing domestic violence.
