Safeguarding Ireland – What is Coercive Control ?





Safeguarding Ireland was established to promote safeguarding of adults who may be vulnerable, protect them from all forms of abuse by persons, organisations and institutions and develop a national plan for promoting their welfare. This will be achieved by promoting inter-sectoral collaboration, developing public and professional awareness and education, and undertaking research to inform policy, practice and legislation in the Republic of Ireland.

Coercive Control –  Public Awareness Campaign

Safeguarding Ireland’s current Public Awareness campaign (March 2021) is on coercive control. What is coercive control and how do we understand it better and have strong laws to prevent and stop it.
