Did you know the domestic violence costs the economy £23 billion every year? But the cost of thousands of men, women and children negotiating their lives under such difficult circumstances is unquantifiable.

We are committed to tackling the root of the problem.

Come along on Wednesday 3 December to meet the team at the Domestic Violence Intervention Project (DVIP) (www.dvip.org), the UK’s leading domestic violence charity, to hear about what we do, and how you can get involved.

We are a charity that works with around 1000 victims and perpetrators of domestic violence every year through one to one support and group workshops. DVIP is looking to recruit volunteers in an effort to promote awareness and offer more help to those in need.

Volunteering possibilities include fundraising and admin tasks, violence prevention and victim support - there are also opportunities for training and personal development.

Whether you can commit to just three hours or a few evenings every week, join us on Wednesday 3 December to hear presentations, speak to members of staff and ask any questions you may have. Refreshments will be provided.

Volunteering programs will start in early 2015 and last between a minimum 6 and 12 months.

Th4 Logan Symposium brings together key figures in the fight against invasive surveillanand recy.
Barbican, 4-7 December 2014
http://logancij.com/


Organised by the Centre for Investigative Journalism and generously funded by The Reva and David Logan Foundation, this year’s inaugural event features leading journalists and hacktivists. They form a natural alliance committed to a world free of authoritarian invasions of individual privacy and free speech.

Seeking common ground, journalists offer hacktivists a social and political context, as well as expertise in evidence-based storytelling. Hacktivists, expert in accessing, exposing and protecting critical evidence-based material, bring their own set of formidable skills.

Joined by artists, lawyers and whistleblowers, these communities will offer each other, and the general public, charged, highly informed debate. Now that the Snowden disclosures have sunk in, it’s time for uncensored talk about the immediate threats we face.
