People with disabilities may be vulnerable to additional harm in domestic abuse situations, and may remain hidden victims due to a lack of representation and understanding. It is important that professionals are aware of the challenges faced by people with disabilities so that we can support our clients to keep themselves safe and access support.

This course covers:

  • What is disability?
  • Models of disability (social/medical) and legislation around this
  • Statistics on the intersection of disability and domestic abuse
  • Barriers to reporting for the survivor
  • Safety planning for people with disabilities
  • Services for people with disabilities
  • Sheffield Pathways
  • Domestic abuse services in Sheffield and how they can help.

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.

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.
