Domestic Violence Awareness Training

Domestic Violence


This training stems from a ground-breaking 2-year funded European Project which has produced best practice training for housing professionals.

This training course is for anyone who works in housing, particularly those who aren’t domestic abuse specialists. It will provide housing professionals with an understanding of domestic abuse as a social issue and its dynamics. It will also equip them with the skills to identify risk factors; report appropriately, implement an action plan in conjunction with the family’s needs; and make appropriate onward referral to support services.

The trainers have a wealth of experience working in both the housing and domestic abuse sector so the course is directly relevant and relatable to your work.
