Our QQI accredited trainers aim to educate people on recognising the signs, understanding how to respond and support those experiencing Domestic Violence and Abuse.

Our training and information sessions aim to raise awareness of the controlling and coercive nature of domestic violence, including psychological and sexual violence. We also strive to resource professionals and members of the public with information on how to access services and seek appropriate support.

Education Workshops

The ultimate goal of our educational workshops is to stop dating violence before it starts. Strategies that promote healthy relationships are vital. During the preteen and teen years, young people are learning skills they will need in order to form positive relationships with others. This is an ideal time to promote healthy relationships and prevent patterns of dating violence that can last into adulthood.

Dating violence often starts with teasing and name calling, but can quickly progress to threats, violent outbursts, stalking and physical assaults. For some, these behaviours are seen as part of a ‘normal’ relationship and these workshops aim to challenge that. We offer a range of workshops and training sessions for school classes, or groups and organisations involving young people
