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.

very informative

Very thought provoking

An excellent training course highlighting the many aspects to domestic abuse.

Really good and helpful

Found this course helpful. I have experienced domestic abuse and it had good information for those who had never gone through it to understand how it feels and what the signs are etc.

Very interesting

I did enjoyed the domestic abuse training today, very interesting.

Very informative, I feel confident.

I feel the course has given me the right tools to be able to identify and have a conversation with someone who is displaying signs of Domestic abuse. The resourses available are really helpful for referring or signposting. As a survivor myself, the course highlighted some of my own behaviours and I understand more about myself and my behaviours of when I was going thorugh that abuse. Thank you!

good level

Seeing as how in the past I used to work in this area - it raised facts that I perhaps would have forgotten if not for this short training session. everything was clearly spoken and laid out.

Easy to follow

This user gave this course a rating of 5/5 stars

To much focus on gender

There was to much focus on the gend erof the survivor. Men may not be the biggest demography or a survivor but that can easily be donw to reporting of abuse. Also does the stats take into account same sex couples.Leave out the highlighting that Women are the biggest number of survivors and men perpetrators and its a great session

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.
