The Domestic Abuse Bill; What do we welcome and where does the bill need to do more?

We are proud to have participated in this discussion on the Domestic Abuse Bill and what it will mean for some of the most vulnerable migrant women with whom we work. Our thanks to the Bishop of Gloucester The Rt Revd Rachel Treweek for creating this important space for sharing our experiences.

Podcast episode 16: Bishop Rachel enters into conversation with Nicole Jacobs, the Designate Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales, and six women in key roles who welcome the domestic abuse bill and yet also long for more as the Bill returns to the House of Lords for the second reading.

In conversation:
Nicole Jacobs, Designate Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales (pictured)
Robyn Andréo-Boosey, Co-director, IC Change and Manager, Anglican Diocese of Melbourne’s Preventing Violence Against Women Program.
Niki Gould, Head of Women’s Community Services, Nelson Trust
Huda Jawad, Co-founder of Faith & VAWG Coalition
Pragna Patel, Director of Southall Black Sisters.
Andrea Simon, Head of Public Affairs at End Violence Against Women Coalition
Katy Swaine Williams, Senior programme manager, Prison Reform Trust
The Rt Revd Rachel Treweek, Lord Bishop of Gloucester and Anglican Bishop for HM prisons
