As the under secretary for state for Crime/Safeguarding & vulnerability I am calling upon you to hear our voices and help us to make it a statutory requirement for employers to have a member of staff trained to assist anyone whose life is affected by abuse of any sort.
Why is this important?
Figures in 2011 showed that here in the UK £1.8bn is lost in economic output, since then grants have been cut, refuges have been closed and Domestic Violence has increased.
People suffer in silence because they are so ashamed of their situations, those lucky enough to have a job are often too scared to disclose because they fear losing something that is possibly the only constant thing in their lives.
