Does your organisation have the tools in place to support staff who may suffer from domestic violence?
Domestic violence can affect anyone at any time. The Corporate Alliance Against Domestic Violence (CAADV) state that 7% of women and 5% of men in England and Wales experienced domestic violence in the last year alone. £2 billion is the annual cost of domestic violence and abuse to businesses.
This guidance was produced by the NHS Staff Council’s Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group
for NHS staff to give information about things to include when developing a domestic violence and abuse policy or to add into any existing policy organisations may have.
Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group
The overall purpose of the group is to raise standards of workplace health, safety and wellbeing in healthcare organisations and to promote a safer working environment for all healthcare staff.
