Adults with care and support needs are more likely to experience domestic abuse and to live with abuse for longer before receiving support.
Prior to attending this course, all participants are asked to complete the following e-learning course which should only take about 30 minutes to complete: http://www.cambsdasv.org.uk/website/elearning_modules/92616.
The purpose of this training is to raise awareness of the prevalence of domestic abuse amongst adults with care and support needs and the various forms it might take; increase understanding of the support needs of people experiencing domestic abuse, particularly when combined with other care and support needs; and to encourage partnership working to best meet the needs of an individual.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Discuss how domestic abuse affects adults with care and support needs
- Identify guidance and legislation relating to supporting adults experiencing domestic abuse
- Identify multi-agency partners who may be involved in safeguarding adults experiencing domestic abuse
