Workplace Safespace is an exciting new project brought to you by Hillingdon Women’s Centre, The Sharan Project and Hillingdon Council. We have been able to join forces thanks to funding from Hillingdon Council and The London Community Foundation as part of the Ministry of Justice COVID-19 extraordinary funding.
We’re very grateful for the funding, which allows us to work in partnership and deliver bespoke training by specialists who have over 20 years experience in the field.
The Workplace Safespace Project
The Workplace Safespace employers’ initiative is aimed at businesses, employers and organisations in the London Borough of Hillingdon and surrounding areas. Organisations that sign up should be invested in tackling and reducing Domestic Abuse and creating safer and more supportive work enviornments for their staff.
The project is completely FREE and organisations that take part will receive certification at the end of 7 hours of online learning. By signing up to the Workplace Safespace training allows you to become an employer of the future by creating a workplace that is Domestic Abuse Aware. It also demonstrates how your organisation is progressive and forward thinking because you recognise the need to have Domestic Abuse training. By signing up also shows how you are committed to creating a united front and standing in solidarity to voice a clear message: Domestic Abuse will not be tolerated.
By joining Workplace Safespace, you will not only be receiving FREE specialist training, you will also have access to a Domestic Abuse advisor who will help you to create, or update, existing Domestic Abuse policies. If you wish to establish a physical safespace in your workplace, your Domestic Abuse advisor will be able to support you with this.
By signing up to be part of the project, your organisation will receive monthly newsletters and be invited to monthly networking sessions.
Through our specialist training, we provide employers with the skills and knowledge to spot the warning signs of staff members experiencing Domestic Abuse, and equip businesses with information on how to support these staff and where to go next.
This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to learn about Domestic Abuse, spot the warning signs and identify victims/ potential victims. It also gives businesses the chance to show solidarity with Domestic Abuse survivors and offer the necessary support. By signing up to and completing the scheme, businesses will receive certification and be given brilliant recognition of excellent wellbeing practises at work.
