J9 Domestic Abuse Initiative
The J9 Domestic Abuse Initiative is named in memory of Janine Mundy, who was killed by her estranged husband while he was on Police bail. The initiative was started by her family and the local police in Cambourne, Cornwall, where she lived and aims to raise awareness of domestic abuse and assist victims to seek the help they so desperately need.
J9 training sessions are intended to raise awareness and increase knowledge and understanding of domestic abuse for staff in public and voluntary sector organisations. In the course of their work, these staff may come into contact with someone they suspect is a victim of domestic abuse, or a client may reveal that they are suffering abuse. The training aims to ensure that staff are equipped to respond appropriately and effectively.
The leaflets in this information pack are intended to be used to signpost victims of domestic abuse to the support services they need.
J9 Coordinators Pack
The J9 co-ordinators pack has been developed to allow Community Safety Partnerships to pick up the work of the J9 project and organise training sessions to raise awareness and increase knowledge and understanding of domestic abuse for staff in public and voluntary sector organisations. The training aims to ensure that staff are equipped to respond appropriately and effectively.
The pack includes: –
- Training procedures and documentation;
- J9 contacts;
- Useful information.
