In 2021 we co-created Sharon’s Policy – a domestic abuse policy for SMEs informed by business woman Sharon Livermore’s lived-experience of abuse. It aims to help employers to take action on domestic abuse; to spot the signs, encourage disclosures, and to support employees who may be experiencing it.
Sharon’s Policy has recently been updated, and undergone legal review, to ensure that employees’ experiences are more widely understood in line with new domestic abuse legislation (2021 Domestic Abuse Act). Sharon’s Policy is available free of charge to all EIDA members, as part of their toolkit for Employers. To find out more visit eida.org.uk.
