Multi agency collaborative workshop on World Eradication of Domestic Abuse Day

The objective of the national domestic abuse strategic plan is to eradicate violence and abuse in Gibraltar in all its forms, as well as the stigma attached to it, as well as to prevent abuse through education at an early age.

Today, the 25th November, is marked by the United Nations as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

A total of 14 representatives recently attended a two-day collaborative strategic planning workshop with a focus on a collaborative approach to tackling domestic abuse matters.

Justice and Health Minsiter Samantha Sacramento says having a co-ordinated, collaborative approach by core agencies in Gibraltar is essential to victims of domestic abuse and violence seeking help and support and their needs being recognised by the agencies.
