Get on it 😊 Great practical course that will influence my DV support to clients.

I have really enjoyed the Freedom
Programme course. I like the way the Dominator is broken down into different controlling
ways for the ladies to recognise. It helps ladies to identify these behaviours
for themselves, rather than hearing it from a professional (as to what they
would know). I especially think discussions around beliefs is important.
Brilliant 😊

Definitely a must for colleagues I
work with in regards to the women & families we work with. A very

support the ladies who will be on the course. Thankyou for this facilitator

Interesting training that gives a
good over view to all aspects of domestic abuse. Breaking it down into separate
areas which helps to identify tactics/beliefs of the perpetrator.

Really informative training, lots of
roleplay and practical sessions to ensure we know how it will work in a group.


I would tell them how good it this
programme is and how it really gives a full awareness of domestic abuse and the
effects it has on women, men & families.


Amazing – for a friend or colleague.
Really insightful and will change the way you think about domestic abuse, Its
fun! Ive had a laugh with other women – at the same time learning so much,
tackling some really emotive subjects. Fantastic!

Great – Freedom Programme can support
women experiencing abuse using accessible language and solidarity.  Felt a bit confusing on 2nd day, but got
easier as course progressed. Knowledgeable trainers with a great sense of

Worthwhile training and a positive
experience. Good opportunities to do the add-on’s; male perpetrator &
children’s training to expand knowledge and provide additional services. Much
needed training and services to address DV!!!

Practice Learning Mentor

Insightful. I thought I knew a lot
about domestic abuse, but I have learnt so much more from the eyes of the

Early Help Development Officer

You really need to do this training
to get inside the mind of a perpetrator and see the different ways domestic
abuse can take form.
