Learn about what constitutes domestic abuse, the signs, indicators and effects, how to refer to specialist services in Sheffield (including IDAS) and how each of the services can help.
By the end of the course, participants should:
- Be familiar with the signs of domestic abuse
- Understand the legislation around domestic abuse and coercive control
- Have a raised awareness of the realities and effects of domestic abuse on children and adult victims
- Be able to identify resources in Sheffield to support victims of domestic abuse
- Be familiar with basic knowledge of the legal framework and policies relating to domestic abuse and safeguarding.
This course is suitable for all staff and carers based in Sheffield working with children and young people and who are involved in multi-agency partnerships.
This course is a beginner’s course and should be attended prior to completing the DASH & MARAC training as the two complement each other.
We run a programme of domestic abuse training events throughout the year in collaboration with Sheffield City Council. These events are free and available to professionals working in Sheffield. We have limited places and it is therefore important that you only register for a course if you intend to attend. If you are unable to attend your course for any reason, you must unregister so someone else can take your place. IDAS will report repeat incidents of non-attendance to your direct report.
We operate a three strikes policy and non-attenders who miss three sessions will be blocked from registering for future IDAS training.
