The group were interested in learning from BDVP and BLWA about Domestic Violence best practice. They were particularly interested in access to justice for Domestic Violence victims including how to effectively handle such cases through the justice system.
To facilitate this study visit, BDVP invited partnership members such as Belfast and Lisburn Women’s Aid , PSNI, Solicitors, Children’s Services from Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and Victim Support NI to provide presentations and a discussion session.
The visit went well as demonstrated by the many questions and discussion between the visitors and BDVP members.
