This e-learning course on domestic violence awareness and impact upon children and young people is targeted primarily at those who may come in to contact with children, young people and/or their families during the course of their work and costs £30.00.
The e-learning course is suitable for volunteers, practitioners and managers from the voluntary, statutory and independent sectors.
All levels of staff and volunteers should consider that the e-learning could be relevant to their work, particularly those workers who feel that they may be the first point of contact for survivors of domestic violence: e.g. a receptionist in childrens or adults services.
