Coercive & Controlling Behaviour

– 1 Day Conference  

Thursday 23rd March 2017

– Park Plaza Hotel, Leeds

Hear first hand the stories of survivors who have lived

through coercive and controlling behaviour.


Share in this opportunity to gain in depth understanding

of how this new legislation can be effectively used to

seek protection and prosecutions.


The Serious Crime Act 2015 created a new offence of controlling and coercive behaviour

in intimate or familial relationships. This offence closed a gap in the law around

patterns of controlling or coercive behaviour in an ongoing relationship

between intimate partners or family members.


However, this potentially powerful new legislation is much underused

with large areas of the country reporting no prosecutions.


Join us as we take this opportunity, through the leading expert, Jasvinder Sanghera CBE,

to approach greater survivor engagement and moving complex issues into

a framework of child and public protection. Hear directly both from survivors of

coercive behaviour and nationally recognised experts in the subject.


We will also be joined by Christian Papaleontiou, Head of the Home

Office Interpersonal Violence team as well as a Senior Representative 

of the Director of Public Prosecutions.


This is the first of its kind, a one day conference, led by Karma Nirvana,

the UK leaders within the field of forced marriages and honour based

violence, supporting men and women nationally. Karma Nirvana are

hosting this conference with Sancus Solutions, the UK’s leading dedicated

Investigative Skills training Company.
