Learn to Tackle Domestic Abuse

Domestic Abuse cases increased dramatically during the Covid-19 Lockdown.  As your employees begin returning to the workplace after a period of potentially being in isolation with their abuser, and for those who are still working from home, make sure you and your co-workers are equipped to spot the signs of abuse.

Free Domestic Abuse Training

Through specialist training, we provide employers with the skills and knowledge to support staff members experiencing Domestic Abuse. 

Can your staff work safely from home?  For people affected by Domestic Abuse, one of the most dangerous places they can be is their own home.
