We offer practical learning, development and resources that embed domestic and family violence expertise into the work of specialist practitioners, support and outreach workers, child advocates and counsellors across the sector.
Our professional learning and development is produced and delivered with specialist and direct family and domestic violence experience and researchers, and is informed by good practice principles. We work collaboratively with those in the sector to identify and meet unmet training needs, and to determine key and emerging areas for future training.
Attendees are required to adhere with all current public health advice, Public Health Directions, and CWSW policies (available on request), including mandatory check-in.
