1 in 5 domestic homicides now involve victims aged 60+.

There is lack of both literature, research and guidance when it comes to older survivors. Older survivors experience ‘service poverty’.

Having collaborated on the Supporting Older Survivors Toolkit with Dewis Choice, whilst at Solace, I am well-placed to navigate our way through this vital interactive training session which, using case studies, will cover:

  • Barriers
  • Myths and Mythbusting
  • Spotting the signs of older abuse – domestic and sexual abuse
  • Trauma
  • Dementia
  • Coercive Control
  • How to support older survivors – a targeted response.

Utilising case studies and frontline experience you will learn not to turn away from abuse/DVSA in older survivors and how you can better support them.
