Learning about Cayman

Monday, December 17, 2007

During her recent visit to the Cayman Islands Meg was keen to learn about different aspects of life on the islands. She attended a discussion on domestic violence and was impressed to see how different organisations were working closely together to reduce the stigma of domestic violence, provide help for victims and change attitudes. The meeting included representatives of the police, children and family services and domestic violence support organisations.

 

Meg said:

 

“It was encouraging to see that work that is being done means people are feeling more confident about reporting incidents. We also talked about recent improvements in the UK, such as the development of domestic violence courts, sanctuary schemes and improved legislation and whether these could be introduced in Cayman.”

 

Meg also met representatives of criminal justice organisations over lunch to discuss some of the problems and difficulties they face.

 

She was also shown round University College Cayman Islands by its President, Dr. Hassan Syed. The college provides a range of courses for young people and adults.  They have also just started a Civil Service College programme to improve the skills and knowledge of civil servants.

 

Meg praised this initiative saying:

 

“This is a welcome innovation and has the possibility to become a useful resource, not just for Cayman Island civil servants but also for other overseas territories whose civil servants will be able to undertake courses on-line.”
