We've been very busy adapting and expanding our training to accommodate the lockdown. This has included recently running a number of webinars which have now been edited. We would like to express our thanks to our four speakers so far.
We are also very grateful to all who attended and these are for you, as well as anyone that did not manage to attend the event but are nevertheless interested:
We wanted to raise awareness about an interesting service:
Young Women’s Trust supports young women aged 18-30 with free telephone coaching, helping them build strong mental health, set goals and stay motivated. They also offer a free CV feedback service giving personalised, detailed feedback on CVs and job applications. You can find out more here.
Sadly, we have to report on a recent evaluation of the 10 week voluntary, Positive Relationships Programme funded by Thames Valley PCC. The programme was for those who feel they have an issue in their relationships and want to address their behaviour.
This evaluation from the Centre for Public Innovation, has recommended the programme should close.
Many of you trained Champions may recognise this lady — Fiona played the role of Lil in our risk assessment videos.
Fiona Bowler is a very busy lady and she has a very personal campaign. Please listen and support her in this really important and personal work. She is in search of new cosmetic products for any woman going into refuge for their safety. Consider if you can help her.
Our friends at Galop wanted to share some of their new initiatives and resources:
Support for Survivors
These information sheets offer advice and support for any LGBT+ person who is experiencing domestic abuse. We know that it can be a big and sometimes difficult step to access professional support. Knowing options and resources can help.
