Learn to Tackle Domestic Abuse
Domestic Abuse cases increased dramatically during lockdown. As employees continue working from home, or as they begin returning to work, make sure 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.

How it works
Training happens online using Zoom and takes place each month.
Attend an Introductory Session
Introductory sessions take place each fortnight on a recurring basis from 10-11am. You only need to attend one introductory session.
Training Program Enrolment
After the introductory session, we will enrol you on the training programme where you’ll receive EventBrite links to sign up for the different modules.
Attend Training (online)
Training happens each month and in order to receive certification, you are required to complete 4 compulsory modules.
Once you have completed all 4 modules, you’ll be invited to sign up to the consultancy part of the project where consultants will support you in creating your very own internal Domestic Abuse policy and safespace for staff.
After successful completion of all modules, you will be given resources, action plans and a certificate that shows you are Domestic Abuse aware. This certificate can be proudly displayed in your organisation as it highlights an excellent example of wellbeing practises in the workplace
