Zero Tolerance is launching new guidance on the Domestic Abuse Bill for journalists, in consulation with Scottish Women's Aid and ASSIST.

The ground breaking Domestic Abuse Bill is making its way through parliament. If passed, the Bill will come into effect in late 2018 or early 2019. There are many opportunities for covering the Bill’s progress and contents.

Join us at the launch of this briefing and:

  • Hear about the new briefing from Justice Secretary Michael Matheson
  • Speak with key representatives from the women’s sector and ask any questions you may have.
  • Feel confident to report on this guidance with assurance, sensitivity and accuracy

Your words count: your stories and headlines reach survivors, perpetrators, children, adults who grew up with domestic abuse, professionals and communities.

Refreshments will be provided

Now is your opportunity to find out more about a landmark piece of legislation - make sure you register as places are limited! Register via Eventbrite
