Below is a message from Jade, the new Chief Champion in our West Berks network about new training events in the borough. If you have attended the West Berks' DA Awareness training and been waiting to become a DA Champion:
We wanted to highlight to anyone in Torbay waiting for training to become a Champion of domestic abuse that we now have some new events listed thanks to Jason your Chief Champ in Torbay. If you have not yet registered, simply apply online and the dates are available for you to join the course when you apply.
Reducing the Risk of Domestic Abuse provides specialist independent domestic violence services in Oxfordshire. This includes providing a package of support covering crisis intervention, risk assessment, safety planning, assessment of needs and individual support planning and implementation.
Here is a message for all our Champs in West Berks from the new lead in that area. RtR staff recently had the pleasure of meeting Jade. We wish her well in this important role and warmly welcome her to her local network of passionate Champions and trainers:
Are you working with an individual who has been a victim of domestic abuse and would benefit from support for their emotional well-being?
The Brave project provides therapeutic support to victims of domestic abuse with additional emotional or psychological difficulties in East Berkshire. We are now taking referrals for the group starting in January.
We were very grateful to one of our Champions (thanks Panda) for bringing this website to our attention. Basically it recommends apps to spy on your partner. We all need to get savvy about this technology and what is available to perpetrators of coercive control, as well as other types of abuses.
