Standing together against domestic violence

Our research has found that ‘The vast majority of the gaps in the working practices of agencies, and the frustrations of staff dealing with domestic violence on a daily basis could be addressed by effective training’.

Our Commitment to Training

The goal of training is to reduce or eliminate domestic abuse by increasing awareness and improving practice across all sectors. When frontline staff are trained to systematically enquire, identify and respond to domestic abuse, this increases early identification. Training is cost effective and increases staff competency and confidence.

Standing Together endeavour to ensure that practitioners in partner agencies have the skills and expertise to respond appropriately and safely to domestic abuse in the community. Additionally we inform our partners of the resources and skills available within other partner agencies and how these can be access.

What We Offer

Our training is relevant for all managers and practitioners who encounter domestic abuse amongst their client base. We offer a selection of courses suitable both for individual or multi-agencies at a range of levels from a foundation in domestic abuse dynamics to advanced and skills-based courses.

"The (Standing Together) training and understanding of the SDVC has enabled Witness Care Unit staff to be more sympathetic towards domestic abuse victim/witnesses and to promote the court to them, which has helped alleviate some of their concerns"

About Our Training

Training is designed and delivered by professional trainers who all have specialist experience working within the domestic abuse field. Wherever possible, training includes specific input from partner agencies including ADVANCE Advocacy Project, and/or an experienced member of the organisation being trained. Training is highly interactive and based upon current best practice and evidence of what works well in a coordinated community response to domestic abuse.

Standing Together runs courses within the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, throughout London and nationally.
