Women’s Aid ‘Domestic Abuse: It’s Your Business’ training

This FREE training has been developed by Women’s Aid working in partnership with Bristol City Council, Pubic Health and Bristol Zero Tolerance.

Initial and introductory training sessions are for businesses to raise awareness of domestic abuse and workplace issues, thus offering those who experience gender-based violence, a safer, more supportive and better response in their workplace.

The training is coordinated by Bristol Zero Tolerance and is delivered by a pool of experts in the field aimed at businesses to enable them to help and support any employees experiencing gender-based violence in a safe and effective way.

The training gives further knowledge of the effects of domestic abuse on victims and how that can impact on their work. It will also give guidance on developing appropriate policies and procedures and implementing them effectively.

The training can be tailored to the needs of your business and can be incorporated in to staff training days or meetings as appropriate. Please contact us to discuss the best way to deliver it for your organisation.

This training is aimed at all staff to raise awareness of these important issues, but particularly:

  • Line Managers
  • Human Resources staff
  • Employee Assistance Programmes
  • Union representatives
  • Anyone who has an interest in being a first point of contact for support in the workplace and may be identified as a Workplace Champion.
