The Bracknell Forest domestic abuse forum is a group of professionals from a number of both statutory and voluntary services, who collectively aim to increase awareness and services to those affected by domestic abuse.
The forum aims to identify and promote good practice, ensuring that agencies know about each other and provide them with the opportunity to develop a multi-agency strategy aimed at reducing the level of domestic abuse in the borough of Bracknell Forest.
In order to identify and support someone experiencing domestic abuse, it is key that local professionals, whether working in a statutory or voluntary agency, are equipped with the appropriate knowledge and skills.
There are various training events available for professionals working in this field:
A quarterly domestic abuse newsletter is produced which contains up-to-date local and national information.
