This educational conference is ideal for multi-faith leaders, members of multi-faith communities, statutory service workers, academics, survivors of Domestic Violence and Abuse (DVA), politicians, and professionals who work with victims and perpetrators of DVA. We strongly encourage you to plan to attend the full conference for maximum benefit. This conference is open to delegates in and around Derbyshire.

Speakers: Representing multi-faith communities, professionals, third sector organisations, academics and politicians, our speakers will give multi-dimensional perspectives on the occurrence of DVA in faith communities.  There will be in depth insight on the needs of adult and child victims in faith communities; and a bold emphasis on how to facilitate radical work with perpetrators of DVA, given that they are the key agents of DVA.

Speakers include: Alan Charles, Derbyshire Police & Crime Commissioner; Dr Musharraf Hussain OBE, DL, Chief Executive Officer, Karimia Institute; Kudakwashe Nyakudya, Founder Director of Kahrmel Wellness; Rabbi Tanya Sakhnovich, Nottingham Jewish Synagogue; Justin Humphreys, Head of Safeguarding, Churches Child Protection Advisory Service; Alison Byrne, Specialist Midwife for FGM, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust. Full list of speakers …

Using in depth research and experiences shared by survivors, conference topics will examine some aspects of DVA we have come across in faith communities. These include – The co-existence of DVA & Child Sexual Abuse; Legal perspectives, including the needs of migrant victims; Spiritual Abuse; Female Genital Mutilation; The complex dynamics confronting victims; The behavioural patterns of perpetrators; Fostering complete restoration of adult & child victims; and Using faith to find healing & restoration.

The outcome of our Derbyshire educational conference will undoubtedly contribute to the eradication of DVA in the long term, especially in faith communities. Book your place and invite others to join you.
