Domestic Abuse Training
Action provides a range of FREE courses on domestic abuse, specifically for people working in Sheffield. The training is suitable for anyone, irrespective of job role, or the sector that you are working in.
In the UK Domestic abuse affects 1 in 4 woman and 1 in 6 men at some point during their lives. Our training provides people with information on everything from how to spot the signs of domestic abuse and what to do if you think someone is being abused, to providing more detailed and specialist training for those working with vulnerable people.
The training is delivered by our highly skilled trainers who have a wealth of knowledge and experience of working with women and men affected by domestic abuse. Their in depth knowledge informs the training and provides participants with a better understanding of the impact domestic abuse has on those experiencing the abuse, their children and families.
The training is funded by Sheffield Domestic Abuse Coordination Team (DACT) and some courses are delivered in co-ordination with Sheffield Safeguarding Children’s Board.
What do delegates say about our courses?
“The University of Sheffield has been very grateful to Michelle and Lisa at Action Domestic Abuse Service for hosting two briefings on domestic abuse and two training sessions on signs and indicators of domestic abuse, for HR staff and trade union representatives. The delivery was exceptional and very engaging and the content was extremely informative and insightful, and has been highly valued by the attendees. We are keen to arrange further training for staff at the University and would highly recommend this training to others.”
