Domestic Abuse Training

The annual Crime Survey estimates that almost 2.5 Million adults experience domestic abuse each year. In addition, one in five children witness or experience domestic abuse in their childhood.

 

Although it is often an under reported crime, with most cases of domestic abuse kept hidden. The new Domestic Abuse Act 2021 makes prosecuting domestic abuse more straightforward, and offers more protection to those who are being abused, but cases still need to be identified and responses need to be effective.

We have domestic abuse training courses that can introduce the subject to delegates and allow them to gain an understanding and awareness on the subject or we have courses for those that already have a basic understanding and want to focus more directly on supporting those affected by domestic abuse.

We also facilitate educational workshops for Young People
