National Domestic Sexual and Gender Based Violence Training

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

The HSE have prioritised the delivery of a national training programme to support frontline staff working within the HSE and NGO sector to develop skills to recognise and respond to victims of domestic, sexual and gender-based violence (DSGBV) in vulnerable or at risk communities. To help ensure victims of domestic violence are kept safe, staff need to know the signs, indications and consequences of abuse. They need to know how to respond in an appropriate way and be able to make referrals, as appropriate, to a specialist service, where women will be supported to make changes in their lives. This training is now available in the Midlands and welcomes applicants that work front line with women who may be vulnerable to domestic, sexual and gender-based violence. You are invited to book your place using the details below.
