Domestic abuse affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men in their lifetime (ONS 2016) and with over 3 million workers in our industry, chances are it is happening right now. Rather than feeling powerless and even being oblivious, today we want to share with you the Domestic Violence Resource Manual For Employer (second edition) put together by the UK charity Refuge. This manual helps employers to understand what domestic violence is, how they can recognise it happening to an employee, and what to do about.
We want to ensure you that the School will continue to provide the highest quality learning to you amidst the Coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to do this by changing the format of our face to face activities (workshops, full and half day supplier briefings, meetings) and broadcasting them remotely via a webinar forma (or similar alternative). We hope you find this move reassuring so that you can still access all of our free training in a safe environment.
We are continuing to monitor the situation as it evolves and will adjust our approach accordingly so please keep an eye out for our emails and on our website.
