Event Details

This training is for youth workers, residential care staff, and other practitioners working with young people.
The Under Pressure training programme aims to support professionals working with young people to open discussions with them about some of the challenges and pressures they may be facing. Those challenges include risks of grooming and sexual exploitation, negotiating online safety, engaging in healthy consent-based relationships, and dealing with the pressures to conform to idealised models of ‘how to be’ men and women.

22janAll DayNext Steps Towards a Victim-Centred Justice System

more

Event Details

The Scottish Government has committed to ensuring the voices of victims ‘are heard, to streamline their journey through the criminal justice system, and to provide wide-ranging support and accessible information through(out) the process.’

This event examines the next steps for creating a victim-centred justice system in Scotland and what this means for justice organisations, victims, and the professionals who support them.

The Victims Taskforce was established in 2018 to drive forward this agenda. Informed by a Victims Sounding Board and victim reference groups, the Taskforce is overseeing work to improve the information available to victims, review how data is shared between different organisations that victims come into contact with, and explore the use of digital tools to support victims. This complements a broad suite of developments being pursued by the Scottish Government that are intended to put victims first.

Critics argue, however, that the Scottish Government must go further, calling for a specific requirement for the prison service to take victim welfare into account prior to granting temporary release, published reasons for release decisions, and the greater use of exclusion zones.

Join Holyrood Events to hear from the Cabinet Secretary for Justice, Huzma Yousaf MSP, who will brief us on the Scottish Government’s priorities for creating a victim-centred justice system. They will also explore what recent and forthcoming developments mean for your work and organisation, learn about how to overcome the barriers you face in improving the experiences of victims, and network with colleagues from across justice agencies, third sector support organisations, and local and central government.

Event Details

The Ayrshire Partnership Delivery Team are now taking nominations for the Coercive Control Training Event on Friday 31 January 2019 at the Park Hotel Kilmarnock.

Please contact Rachael Moss via email to register your interest in this event  – rachaelmoss@north-ayrshire.gov.uk

East, North and South Ayrshire Justice Services are hosting this event which will look at coercive control.  Input on the day will be provided by Luke Hart from the CoCoAwareness organisation who will speak about his personal experiences of Coercive Control.  There will also be input from from Women’s Aid on the Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Act 2018.

Luke and his brother Ryan have appeared on a number of high profile television programmes talking about the devastating impact of coercive control on their family. On 19th July 2016, Luke and Ryan Hart’s father shot and killed their mother, Claire, and 19-year-old sister, Charlotte, in a cswimming pool in broad daylight. He then committed suicide. Luke and Ryan had broken their mother and Charlotte out of the family home only five days previously, and moved them to safety five miles from the family home. Despite their father’s controlling nature, they had never considered their lives to be in danger and had never considered that they were victims of domestic abuse as their father was never physically violent.

Registration will take place from 9.30am with the session starting at 10.00am prompt and finishing around 1.00pm.
