Domestic Violence and Faith: A Toolkit for Faith Leaders, Faith Organisations and Members of Faith Communities

The Praying for Peace Project was a one year funded initiative co­ordinated by the Greater London Domestic Violence Project (GLDVPO to further develop and support faith communities in responding to domestic violence and to encourage domestic violence services to be more responsive to faith issues.

As part of the Praying for Peace Project, GLDVP has produced Domestic Violence and Faith: a toolkit for Faith Leaders, Faith Organisations and Members of Faith Communities to provide faith leaders, workers and community members with the knowledge and resources to address domestic violence.

The toolkit aims to provide the tools to:

  • Effectively and appropriately support those affected by domestic violence, and/or
  • Try to respond effectively to perpetrators, and/or
  • Address social tolerance of domestic violence.

The toolkit was launched on 1 April 2008 at a multi­faith dialogue event on domestic violence.
