Saw Georgia speak at the National Survivors Conference, she is an amazing young woman. Georgia raises awareness of the impact of domestic abuse on children and that when their mothers are abused, children are victims too. www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/teenager-who-saw-stepfather-murder-mother-says-crime-register-would-... ...

Early in the pandemic our incredible group of Pioneer-survivors put forward the idea of a codeword to be used in pharmacies - one of the few shops still open during #lockdown. ‘Ask for ANI’ has now been used over 45 times since its launch by the Home Office 7 weeks ago. That is the power of #SurvivorsSupportingSurvivors. More information on the codeword here: www.gov.uk/guidance/domestic-abuse-how-to-get-help #InternationalWomensDay ... See MoreSee Less

Timeline PhotosMarch is Women's History Month, and when we talk about the history of the domestic violence movement, we call it #DVhistory. In 1974, "Scream Quietly or the Neighbors Will Hear" by Erin Pizzey was published, marking the first time a book about domestic violence was written from the victim's perspective. #SurvivorSpeaks ...

Today was our day in the Court of Appeal. We intervened in support of today’s landmark hearing to make clear that these domestic abuse cases are far from unusual - they are what survivors and their children tell us every day is what happens in the family courts - and it must change. #familycourtfail Survivors often report that the courts still take a ‘contact at all costs’ approach to decisions on child contact with a parent where there are allegations of domestic abuse, ignoring its impact and undermining their children's safety.This landmark hearing shines a light on what survivors have been telling us for decades, and the urgent reforms that are required.📢 Along with RapeCrisis England & Wales & Welsh Women's-Aid, we’re working with Rights of Women and calling on the Court of Appeal to send a clear message: outdated and harmful myths about domestic abuse are no longer welcome in family courts. ...

COVID Regulations on the Isle of Man have been changed so it is not an offence for people to move home or go to another property such as a friends home or family member to flee Domestic Abuse. It means they can go to a hostel too. They can be transported there or share a car with someone for those purposes. ... See MoreSee Less

Interesting interview - she appears dignified and "real" while he minimises, denies and evades and oozes narcissism. Totally agree with Rachel's comment below and Tina shows there is hope and strength and recovery after domestic abuse. Sadly the abuser looks like he will never change, grow or learn. ...

Attended a lunch hosted by our sponsor, the Joanna Simpson Foundation today, announcing the Foundation's funding of a full time domestic abuse worker at The Children's Centre from January. Exciting news for the Island. We already deliver Own My Life Course in partnership with the Children's Centre, and as they develop their domestic abuse service, this partnership will develop and grow. Many thanks to the JSF for funding this vital work and for inviting Space 4Action to have a stand at the lunch, publicising our work.

This is the message we have been trying to get across in all our training and conversations - DA is a constant pandemic, it was not caused by Covid-19, it was highlighted by it as it made a bad situation even harder for those experiencing abuse. As part of future training we hope to offer a segment for the media about reporting DA in an informed way using language that places responsibility with the abusive person not with the person being abused. theconversation.com/coronavirus-murders-media-narrative-about-domestic-abuse-during-lockdown-is-w... ...

The first batch of feedback from our Own My life Taster Day for professionals has been very positive. This training day was attended by a mix of professionals across services and was a rewarding and encouraging experience. 100% of the professionals who attended the day found it met their expectations. 100% found it interesting and informative. 100% found attending was useful. All felt the day increased their knowledge (80% very much and 20% somewhat). All would recommend it to other professionals considering attending. Two people had minor suggestions for 'tweaking' content or delivery, but otherwise everyone who attended felt it was a very good day with lots of content. Thank you to all those who attended and thank you for your feedback. We will definitely run another Taster Day soon.

We are really pleased that another session of Own My Life Course went so well, with such a lot of participation and interest from the group, and so much learning for ALL of us. Other exciting news is we are getting a new, upgraded and re-vamped website. This means that from tomorrow the website will be down for a while to allow for the change over and upgrades. Please bear with us - we think the new look website will be worth the wait! Meanwhile, we can be contacted via Facebook. Thanks for your patience and support. ... See MoreSee Less

We are so excited that yesterday's first session of the Own My Life Course Pilot at the Children's Centre went really well. An amazing group of survivors, a great group to work with and already the group has gelled with such a feeling of mutual support. Feedback has already been amazingly positive, with women already seeing the benefit of the course both for themselves and for others who they want to invite and bring along. New people can join next week, but after that the group will be closed. However, interested people can sign up for the next course, which will probably be an evening session. Well done and thank you to all those who are part of the Pilot, we are so happy that you already see why we believe this is such a good course. Thankyou to the Children's Centre for hosting and partnering; thank you to the Manx Lottery for helping to fund the Pilot. Looking forward to next week. ... See MoreSee Less
