Just wanted to drop you a very quick line to say today's Domestic Abuse conference was excellent, one of the best conferences I have been at, some really engaging speakers and really meaty topics - the legal aspects as covered by Lesley Thomson, Morag Driscoll, and the debaters at the end, were really useful. Well done and thanks for asking me to be part of it!
