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.
