We decided to provide information sessions to staff. The purpose of these sessions: to understand what the Freedom Programme is all about and be able to share the information with their client group. The feedback from these sessions was very positive; everyone found them very powerful in regards to raising awareness of behaviours in domestic abuse perpetrators. Statements from participants include:
“This was absolutely fantastic and is amazing insight into what support is available for victims of domestic abuse, it will make it easier for me to explain to women what help is available and what is involved.”
“Absolutely amazing the information given and interactive discussion were beneficial and insightful. A great way of presenting and well organised.”
We delivered three groups in 2017, with around 90 participants. We look forward to more next year!
