Press release from: Celeb FC

Sutton Women's Centre are hosting a conference on Domestic Abuse, at The Grange, Beddington Park, Wallington on 28th March 2019. Over 140 delegates from local organisations, charities and businesses will be attending. The conference will give them the opportunity to listen to survivors of abuse, explore the issue of coercive control, its impact and how local strategies are tackling this.
A number of leading national and local professionals and thought leaders have signed up to speak, including

Luke & Ryan Hart – Authors of “Operation Lighthouse”
Tom Brake – MP Carshalton & Wallington
Paul Scully – MP Sutton & Cheam
Anna Virabyan – Artist
Nina Malik – The Freedom Programme
Dr Nicola Sharps-Jeffs - Director of Surviving Economic Abuse
Jessica Crowe - London Borough Sutton
DI Chuks Gwam - Metropolitan Police in the list
Jean Crossby – LB Sutton Lead Councillor Against Domestic Abuse & Patron of Sutton Women’s Centre

Ahead of the event, Anna Cummins said:
“With over 120 women accessing our domestic abuse services we fully understand the devastating and long-term impact of coercive control. We know that abuse starts with perpetrators isolating women from their families and support networks, exploiting them, depriving them of independence and regulating their everyday behaviour. This conference is an opportunity for delegates from the public sector, community organisations, charities and local women to better understand what coercive control is, the tactics used by perpetrators, and the impact to victims. This understanding is vital if we are to provide the right support and services to victims."
