Local partnerships are the key to tackling domestic abuse, but we know successful partnerships don't just happen. Making them work without coordination is very difficult.
Hundreds of Domestic Violence Coordinators around the country work to strengthen their community's response to domestic abuse, often with little support or certainty about the future of their post.
The Domestic Violence Coordinators Network is there to support, represent, and connect the individuals in this critical, specialist role.
Why join the network?
As well as exclusive access to expert resources and invitations to DVCN conferences and other events, network membership gives you:
- two national conferences per year
- space to reflect on and share your practice
- networking opportunities
- strategies to guard your independence and increase influence
- a stronger voice, through our lobbying on local and national issues relating to domestic violence
