On 29 April 2015, the Violence against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (Wales) Bill received Royal Assent and became an Act.
Social housing providers in Wales are uniquely placed to help individuals experiencing domestic abuse. In partnership with Welsh Women’s Aid, CIH Cymru is pleased to offer a new suite of training designed to enhance your understanding of violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence (VAWDASV). We are offering three different courses that will raise your awareness of VAWDASV, build confidence in identifying signs of VAWDASV in the home and help to improve how disclosures are managed and how survivors are supported.
This half day course is aimed at frontline staff working with people affected by trauma on a regular basis. The effects of such work can be wide ranging and include changes in physical, psychological and social wellbeing which may result in burnout, negativity, cynicism, absenteeism, as well as a high turnover of staff. The training focuses on coping mechanisms for staff.
