Everyday Victim Blaming

challenging institutional disbelief around domestic & sexual violence and abuse

Professionals working with those who have experienced abuse – Survey Results

In October 2013, we surveyed 100 professionals who work with those who have experienced Domestic and/or Sexual Violence and Abuse. We've written the results up because they clearly show the need for training - and, more importantly, that funding for training must be available.

Funding for training and development is often one of the first areas to feel the squeeze when services are cut and yet it is unrealistic to expect professionals to gain and share knowledge without access to training and skills development.

We must invest in staff in order to invest in those we are working with - professionals and those we are working with deserve to be given the opportunity to develop and expand their skills and in turn, improve the service provided to those we are working with.

Thanks to a small amount of Social Enterprise funding, we are offering open-access training to staff working with those who have experienced abuse. You can find more details and a booking form in the links below:
