Abuse training for professionals

Professionals including local authority officers, housing organisation staff, HR team members, CAB teams and children centre workers who come into contact with women experiencing domestic abuse are being offered the opportunity to gain a qualification in the subject.

Being offered by Broxtowe Women’s Project, (BWP) this new course will help any organisation that needs to provide support to either its own staff or to service users and will provide information on ways to promote awareness around the issue and how and where to refer cases.

Being delivered over two separate days in Eastwood, those who complete the course will gain an AIM Award Level 2 in Domestic Abuse & Mental Wellbeing Awareness.

Sarah Dagley, Business and Fundraising Manager for BWP, says: “The content of this course will be helpful to a wide range of people for a variety of reasons.

“It will contribute to the needs of Safeguarding legislation, provide evidence for those working towards quality standards, help those working on policies and, above all, improve the support those experiencing domestic abuse receive.”

The course will run on Thursday May 10th and Thursday May 24th, from 9.30am to 4.00pm and included in the price of £75 are lunch and light refreshments on each day.
