Here’s some great testimonials from staff and support workers following 2 day Freedom Programme domestic abuse training at Acocks Green Children’s Centre, Birmingham in February 2015.

Delegates were asked; “What would you tell a friend or colleague about this training?”

“Informative and enjoyable course, extending your knowledge and understanding of DV and the effects on women and children.”
New Birth Worker

 

“Excellent, well worth attending, enjoyable and tiring but would recommend it. Should be mandatory training for social workers to undertake!”
Early Years Outreach 

 

“It gave me a much better understanding of the behaviors and effects of domestic violence.”
Early Years Outreach

 

“This training is vital learning for all people over the age of 12, I feel it should be made part of curriculum. Also that there are many professionals in public service roles who could benefit from this training, it would definitely enable them to identify impact of domestic abuse from conception to adulthood into old age. Plus an eye opening experience to reflect and learn about your own relationships.”
Virtual Assistant

 

“I would recommend the training to my colleagues to inform them and increase their knowledge of identifying DV and the behaviours and effects of victims we come across in our daily work.”
Family Support Worker

 

“I would state that the course is intense and a lot to learn. However you start to look at aspects of life and relationships in different perspectives.”
Family Support

 

“Yes, I would recommend to any colleague and explain the importance of the Freedom Programme training. I feel it is vital that all services have the knowledge to complete good working relationships.”
Family Support Worker

 

“The training will benefit anyone who is or has experienced DV to help them to understand the different types of abuse and the tactics that are used. It will also strongly benefit the practitioners working with the said people.”
Family Support Worker

 

“Very informative and beneficial to attend.”
Family Support Worker

 

“I would advise professionals from varied backgrounds to attend the course whenever the opportunity arises, infact they should MAKE the opportunity arise! The training will lead to a greater understanding across the board and avoiding some action taken against families due to a lack of understanding or knowledge on the part of professionals.”
Family Support

 

“Informative to what clients will actually learn or takeaway from the Freedom Programme Training.”

“The training is very informative, and it breaks it all down for you. I found it very intense but also great fun it was so engaging and helped me to expand my knowledge in a memorable way.”
