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.
