We have joined the Employers Initiative on Domestic Abuse
Domestic abuse can happen to anyone of any age, gender, race, sexual orientation, religion or background. Abusive behaviour includes: physical or sexual abuse, violent or threatening behaviour, emotional abuse, controlling or coercive behaviour, economic abuse, psychological, or other abuse.
The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 makes clear that employers should consider the impact of domestic abuse on their employees as part of their duty of care. As a responsible employer, Beyond Limits are a member of the Employers’ Initiative on Domestic Abuse (EIDA) www.eida.org.uk and we are committed to their membership charter which includes fostering a safe, supportive and open environment to allow domestic abuse to be effectively tackled in the workplace and supporting employees who are affected by domestic abuse and those that report it by providing access to information and services.
Organisations that can provide support
If you or someone you know needs help there are several organisations that can provide support. You do not have to wait for an emergency situation to find help. If domestic abuse is happening to you, it’s important to tell someone and remember you’re not alone.
