The aim of this training is to enable participants to engage thoughtfully and pro-actively with the issue of Domestic Abuse.
It will raise awareness of different types of domestic abuse, give confidence to participants to spot possible signs of domestic abuse and enable them to respond well.
Up to now the course has only been available as an online module on the Church of England Safeguarding Portal.
This course is a requirement for Clergy, Readers, Licensed Lay Ministers, those with Permission to Officiate and anyone holding the Bishop’s licence and Parish Safeguarding Officers.
