Domestic Abuse Awareness

CPD Approved

In the UK, more than one in ten crimes reported to the police are related to domestic abuse.

Course Description

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.
