About this course

Employers have a duty of care and a legal responsibility to ensure that all of their employees have a safe place to work and this includes addressing and dealing with disclosures of domestic abuse.

Without a doubt, the way we work has changed. Many people now work from home and this means that those who are experiencing domestic abuse don’t have a safe place to live or work. Because of this, it’s crucial, now more than ever, that friends, colleagues and managers are able to spot the signs of abuse and take steps to support the person.

By the end of this course, not only will users have a better understanding of domestic abuse and how to report it, they'll also be equipped with the tools that are needed to help those experiencing domestic abuse.

Whilst developing this training, we worked with Berkshire Women's Aid, who supported us with course content, advice and resources.

Why is this training important?


It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

Domestic abuse takes many forms and its impact can be devastating, far-reaching, and often unexpected.

As an employer, it's important to remember that domestic abuse can affect employees in different ways and spotting the signs can be challenging.

In fact, research demonstrates that businesses who don’t raise awareness about domestic abuse are more likely to see a reduction in productivity and lower staff morale within their organisation, as well as a higher turnover of people, incurring a number of costs along the way.
