Lambeth Council’s Violence Against Women and Girls team
The training is for any local agency that comes into contact with families with children aged 0-3 in the LEAP area.
This training helps early years practitioners to identify, assess, and refer domestic violence cases.
Frontline practitioners do not always have the confidence to identify signs of domestic violence or to have conversations with parents about these issues. We want to equip LEAP’s early years workforce with the skills and know-how to support all parents who are experiencing domestic violence and to refer cases to an appropriate specialist.
The hope is that this will lead to more joined-up and effective support for victims with consistent messages and an established pathway.
An overview of:
This training can be offered as a refresher as well as a more in-depth course depending on the needs of learners. The course considers the impact of domestic violence on young children and encourages early intervention in domestic violence cases.
The training can take the form of bespoke training, bite-size sessions, skills development, 1-to-1 advice and support, support to develop policies, or auditing existing policies and procedures.
As the training is tailored, sessions can be held in your offices or an external venue can be sourced.
