Please only sign up for this session if you are an IDAS volunteer, invited to register by a Volunteer Organiser.
Session A provides an overview of what constitutes domestic abuse and its complexities. In this session, we define domestic abuse and discuss some of the key facts and statistics that make the work of IDAS, volunteers and partners necessary and meaningful. We also provide introductory insights into the pattern and cycle of domestic abuse. Finally, the session unpacks IDAS’s values and ethos and how we apply these in our daily work to support the people that we work with.
