It’s #nationalcomingoutday🌈 ❤️

A special day to support and respect everyone in the #lgbtq society #pride2021 #pridemk

Each murder is heartbreaking with devastation left behind for family and friends with a life cut short.

There is a real need to work together, not just those in the sector but society as a whole.

Domestic abuse is everybody’s business, and this includes employers.

1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men will suffer domestic abuse some time in their lives – and yet we think it is something that happens to ‘other people’.

Can you join us for one of our free #domesticabuse training sessions?

Monday 18th October 9.30am -1pm
