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

J9 training sessions delivered by Safer Places 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.

Below are a list of upcoming J9 training dates in Southend, Thurrock and Essex.  Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on first come, first served basis.
