Welsh Womens Aid - Domestic Abuse Training
Welsh Women's Aid in partnership with Women's Aid Federation England, are running a new pilot called Ask Me.
The scheme will train members of the community to become Ask Me ambassadors. The training willl increase your awareness of what a helpful response to domestic abuse looks like, and give you the knowledge and skills to signpost people towards the specialist help they need.
All kinds of people and organisations can get involved in the scheme - you just need to work or live in Powys (Rhayader or Llanidloes) and come into contact with your community somehow. From bar staff to hairdressers, reception staff to HR teams, dentists, pharmacists, retail staff and community groups - whatever your role, we need your support.
In return, we can offer you free two-day training, ongoing support, essential skills and the chance to make a real difference to the lives of people you encounter every day. Domestic abuse is prevalent in our society, and this is your chance to take action to stop it.
Those that attend the free two day training delivered by Welsh Women's Aid and a local domestic abuse service will receive 12 CPD points. Training venues will be confirmed upon reciept of your successful application (see below).
The training will cover:
• Understanding and recognising signs of domestic abuse in the community
• Responding effectively if someone discloses they are in an abusive relationship
• Knowing where survivors of domestic abuse can get help and support if they want it and self-care.
Please note, in order to confirm your training space we ask you to fill in an application form. Your space is not guaranteed until you do so.
