Hand reaching into sunset

We are delighted that Welsh Women's Aid are working with us to deliver this discovery session.

The Trusted Professional scheme is aimed at front-line practitioners that work in the public and voluntary sectors, and are likely to be in contact with survivors of domestic abuse. This is  a one day course for civil servants in Wales to equip them with the skills and confidence to...

  • Recognise the early signs of violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence
  •  Respond appropriately to a disclosure
  • Refer survivors and perpetrators to the specialist service in their area for support

For many women, when they first disclose they are experiencing domestic abuse no one listens to them. No one consults them about how to stop the abuse, despite the fact that nobody knows the perpetrator better than they do.

Not surprisingly, many women struggle to escape the abuse permanently, build their independence, and get their lives back.

This session will provide you with an understanding of the different ways a women may present signs of domestic abuse and what you can do to help.
