“The Government recognise the powerful role that employers can play in tackling domestic abuse; by supporting employees, raising awareness, and tackling the cultural barriers that exist around disclosure.

The EIDA’s work with business is invaluable in this regard, which is why I am pleased to endorse their new handbook. This comprehensive package of guidance and best practice, including model domestic abuse policies, will go a long way to enabling employers to step up, play their part, and get the help and support to survivors that’s needed.”

Paul Scully, Minister for Business
