Safer is developing its tiered training programme which it will be rolling out more fully in 2017. Safer also supports conferences, offers bespoke training and provides different speakers throughout the year relating to domestic abuse.

Domestic Abuse Awareness Training: Tier 1

This one day multi-agency course is offered for Managers within States Departments, Human Resources staff, front-line States employees, working in Health, Education, Social Work, the Police, Social Security, Housing, Probation, plus people working in Voluntary Agencies, and all those dealing with potential victims and their families.

The course provides an overview of domestic abuse and challenges commonly held beliefs, attitudes and assumptions about domestic abuse. Amongst the issues covered are:

  • The different categories of abuse
  • Why people may stay in abusive relationships
  • How children may be affected by domestic abuse
  • Good practice and interagency working
  • The leaving process and issues to consider when leaving an abusive relationship

The course will include a brief presentation by local specialist domestic abuse agencies about their different roles. 

Confirmed dates for 2017 are:

  • Monday 20 March
  • Tuesday 13 June

To apply, please contact Safer’s Administrative Officer by email enquiries@safer.gg or by telephone 07839 777267 with your name, organisation, contact number and email address.

Please note: although there is currently no charge for our tier one training, there is a no-show/late cancellation fee of £25. Donations towards refreshments are gratefully received on the day.

Domestic Abuse Training: Bespoke Sessions

We are delighted to have been able to offer bespoke training sessions in the past to many different groups and organisations including youth clubs, church groups and other organisations who may come into contact with domestic abuse victims or perpetrators and would like to know how to recognise it and what to do following a disclosure.

Whether you would like a short talk in the evening to your volunteers, a session targeted at your particular client group or training for your HR department on how employers can support employees experiencing abuse, please contact us to discuss your needs.
