DAHA was part of a ground-breaking 2-year funded European Project, which has produced bespoke ‘Safe at Home’ training for housing professionals
This one-day course is for anyone who works in housing, particularly those who aren't domestic abuse specialists. It will provide housing professionals with an understanding of domestic abuse as a social issue and its dynamics. It will also equip them with the skills to identify risk factors; report appropriately, implement an action plan in conjunction with the family’s needs; and make appropriate onward referral to support services.
The trainers have a wealth of experience working in both the housing and domestic abuse sector so the course is directly relevant and relatable to your work.
Learning outcomes include:
Define domestic violence and abuse
Understand the dynamics of an abusive relationship
Understand the impact of domestic abuse on children
Identify signs of domestic abuse in their everyday work
Take an active part in responding safely to domestic abuse
Learn about the Domestic Abuse, Stalking and Honour based violence (DASH) Risk Identification Checklist and your role in the Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)
Collaborate with external services for safe outcomes
