Do you know how to support family, friends, staff, customers who are suffering domestic abuse?

How would you ask the right questions and give the right answers?

Do you know what help is available in Worcestershire?

COVID19 has been extremely hard for victims of abuse and there are many that cannot reach out for help.

We are looking to recruit voluntary Domestic Abuse Champions within our community and local businesses to be a point of contact for anyone who has or is experiencing domestic abuse.

Full training & ongoing support provided by a DA Specialist.

Together, we can build strength in Worcestershire to say NO to domestic abuse. Together, we can reach the unreachable.
