VOICES is partnering with SafeLives on an innovative project to develop culture change training around domestic abuse for family law professionals, funded by the Legal Education Foundation.

This is an opportunity for survivors who have experience of family court processes to inform future training for solicitors and help improve outcomes for adults and children affected by domestic abuse. Watch this space for more news on the development of this work over the next 12-18 months!
