Training for Professionals

What is Domestic Violence Training?


Domestic violence is a serious public health issue. If you are a professional in a statutory or voluntary organisation, you have a vital role to play in ensuring women and children who are affected by abuse get appropriate support and information. DV is one of the major crime and disorder challenges that Birmingham faces.


What can the Training Project do for me?


When women and children affected by DV receive appropriate responses based on an understanding of the issue, we move closer to better protection and empowering them towards safety. Workers in the organisation develop confidence in recognising and responding to DV. Workers are better informed to signpost women and children to specialist services. Organisational time and cost are reduced by early, effective intervention. Organisations meet their legal and statutory duties in relation to child protection and domestic violence.
