Respect, in partnership with SafeLives and the Drive Partnership, is pleased to announce a new package of training courses designed to safely meet the growing demand for effective responses and programmes for perpetrators of domestic abuse.
Over the last year, we have seen a shift in public narrative, policy and funding that has resulted in a significant increase in demand for perpetrator response services. Currently, the demand is outstripping the available workforce.
To ensure this work is safe, effective, and survivor-centred, we need to grow and develop a workforce that is skilled and confident in responding to perpetrators of domestic abuse.This training package, developed by experts in perpetrator work, has been designed to both meet the immediate need for more programmes, and to lay the foundations for future growth, especially in areas where there is currently little to no provision.
These courses will upskill those currently working in perpetrator services, and support those with transferable skills to move into a career working with perpetrators, giving them the tools they need to confidently engage and challenge perpetrators of domestic abuse.
We anticipate a high demand for these courses so express an interest today to avoid disappointment.
