My Sisters Place Domestic Abuse Training

What You'll Do: 

We offer free training courses to members of the local community from all backgrounds and identities where they learn about domestic abuse, how to challenge the stereotypes surrounding it and how to listen to, believe and direct survivors to specialist support. Anyone with a connection to the area where the Change That Lasts Ask Me scheme is running can become an ambassador, whether you have been personally affected by domestic abuse or whether you would like to learn more.


The training we have available at present is going on monthly until Autumn 2022.


Why You'll Love It: 
After the training, ambassadors are given resources and support to share what they have learned with those around them in ways that feel most comfortable to them. They are encouraged to start conversations about domestic abuse that will help others to better understand the barriers that survivors face in speaking out.   An ambassador can commit as much or as little time as they can give.   We keep in touch with Community Ambassadors with new opportunities and events such as ambassador meet-ups, campaign involvement and volunteering. We also send short surveys to find out how they are getting on and how we can support them further.
What You'll Learn: 
The project is a simple initiative that equips everyday people with an understanding of domestic abuse and how to respond to survivors. This knowledge will enable the community to play an active role in ending domestic abuse. The course is designed to welcome community discussion.
What We're Looking For: 
A Community Ambassador...   >  believes in equality of all people, regardless of their gender identity, age, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, cultural beliefs or circumstances. >  listens and believes others that share their personal experiences of domestic abuse. >  is non-judgmental and respectful. > is passionate about ending domestic abuse. > There is a chance that we may decide that it isn't appropriate for a person to take on the role if they don't share these values and qualities. We will work with people to overcome any barriers wherever possible, or we will direct you to a more suitable volunteering or training opportunity.
