Webinar: Domestic abuse and its impact, & Hollie Guard

9th June 2021 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The impact of abuse in the home, even indirectly, is significant for the young people living in these conditions. Anyone can be a victim of domestic abuse, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or background. You can suffer by experiencing domestic abuse indirectly as well as being the direct victim. This webinar will consider how domestic abuse can manifest, and the impact it can have on children and young people, so that practitioners can increase their awareness of abuse in the home and strengthen their ability to respond and support if required. It will also introduce to Hollie Guard, a police approved next generation personal safety app that, once downloaded, provides enhanced levels of protection to all users. The smartphone is instantly turned in to a personal safety device.


This webinar is suitable for delegates from all organisations.


Training aims:

  • Current figures relating to abuse
  • What constitutes domestic abuse
  • How domestic abuse, both direct and indirect, impacts young people in the immediate and longer-term
  • Recognising signs of domestic abuse
