Business park residents invited to Demystifying Domestic Abuse training day

Changing Relations Demystifying Domestic Abuse training day

75% of people affected by domestic abuse experience controlling behaviours such as stalking and surveillance whilst at work.

Would you know what to do if you learned that a colleague was experiencing domestic abuse?

Close to 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men in the UK are likely to be affected by domestic abuse in their lifetime. Of those affected, 58% miss at least 3 days of work a month due to abuse.

Changing Relations wants to empower professionals and organisations to make positive changes that will enable staff to identify, empathise with and support colleagues, clients, friends or family who may be affected by domestic abuse.

Changing Relations knows it can make a real difference to people’s lives, and to the culture of an organisation if businesses are ready to learn and embrace the role they have to play in tackling domestic abuse.

  • Changing Relations’ event takes place on Friday 8th July 2022, from 9:15am to 5pm, at The Work Place, Aycliffe Business Park, Heighington Lane, Newton Aycliffe DL5 6AH

They are offering a full day of training for £95 per person, with lunch included, which has been made possible by their event sponsor Steven Turnball at Patrick Lonergan Recruitment.

Changing Relations’ associate Kelly Henderson will be in attendance should anyone need to step outside as a result of finding the content triggering. Kelly will also be providing support in thinking about policy applications.

  • This training day is limited to 20 participants, therefore we ask that each organisation send a maximum of 2 people. Places are available on a first-come, first-served basis to Aycliffe Business Park residents until 30th April, after which the spaces will be open to companies outside of the business park.
