Jacqui will be looking at the understanding of coercion and control and the increase of its use during the Pandemic, drawing on the most recent piece of Women’s Aid research ‘A Perfect Storm’ and sharing survivors experiences of living with an abuser during lockdown. Jacqui will also look at new horizons within the 7 parts of the new Domestic Abuse Bill. Jacqui manages the National Training Centre at Women's Aid and is a qualified teacher, trainer and assessor. Jacqui's career for almost 30 years had been at the operational level in direct Women's Aid services.

Jacqui is an associate trainer for the College of Policing and is also qualified to chair Domestic Homicide Reviews.
