The Government are committed to transforming their approach to domestic abuse, and that includes improving the response of employers to this devastating crime.

We have therefore awarded £1 million to the charity Hestia for its “Tools for the Job” pilot project, which will help employers to improve their HR policies on domestic abuse and will fund specialist employment domestic violence advocates.
