The second annual Simon Brooke Lecture
Earlier in the month, the second annual Simon Brooke Lecture was held in remembrance of our dear friend and colleague Simon. This year, the focus was on the intersection between domestic violence and housing in Ireland: how access to social housing can be improved for survivors of domestic violence and how can we improve the response of Approved Housing Bodies (AHBs) and Local Authorities to domestic violence within social housing. This is particularly relevant in the context of the forthcoming new national strategy on sexual and domestic violence.
Speakers at the event included Simon’s wife Anna Heussaff, Paula Mayock, Assistant Professor at the School of Social Work and Social Policy, Trinity College Dublin, Lisa Marmion, Services Development Manager (Safe Ireland), Clúid’s own Aoife Flynn Kennedy, Head of Clann and the winner of the Simon Brooke Award, Sarah Kennedy.
