LEVEL 3 – DIPLOMA IN SUPPORTING SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
The course provides a mix of theoretical understanding, reflection and practical skills and tools. It is suitable for anyone working with families, including Social Workers, Troubled Families teams, Family Support Workers, and CAFCASS officers etc. You will be working in other areas where you meet victims of domestic abuse every day. You may work in children’s or adult’s safeguarding teams, education, housing, health, alcohol or drug services, at a Citizen’s Advice Bureau or local Victim Support Service. The chances are that victims aren’t telling you directly about the abuse. But with training you’ll learn how to spot the signs, ‘ask the questions’, assess the level of risk and be trained in how best to respond.
