Most recently, Clare Walker has been campaigning for change and raising awareness of Domestic Abuse and Coercive Control, throughout the COVID Pandemic. Clare was interviewed on BBC News, The initial story broke on 27 May 2020, with an article on the BBC News website followed by BBC New and Radio interviews.
In the days following this, Clare was contacted by David Challen who asked if he could quote Clare in The Observer (31/05/20) article he did, which was to mark a year on since his mother; Sally Challen was released from prison, and reflecting on what has changed since her release regarding Coercive Control. Which tragically is little to no change.
A Barrister from St. Ives Chambers, requested I participate as a Guest Speaker alongside Dr Emma Katz. This event was a recorded webinar (04/06/20) the topic was Coercive Control and Family Court failings. You can watch the webinar here.
Clare was also contacted by Lord Louis Selwyn, Honourary Chair of the Clinical Commissioning Group Association in the House of Lords. Clare was invited to speak on the topic of Coercive Control and looking at how health services are designed and commissioned – for victims of Domestic Abuse, there are quite a few changes that could be made to enable a health practitioner to respond appropriately, efficiently and with compassion. Clare was also invited to complete a 2 page article on Domestic Abuse and Coercive Control to be published in the next edition of the CCGA Journal.
