TENDER LECTURE DETAILS
“We believe domestic and sexual violence represent two of the most common and unspoken violations of human rights in the UK. Every week two women are murdered by their partners or ex-partners. By working with young people, we are working with the future of society and believe that over time we will be instrumental in saving lives.” – Susie McDonald, Chief Executive
